The Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science and Fairview Elementary School partnered together for the elementary school’s annual Reading Fair.
Eighteen current MSMS students were asked to come to Fairview, which is located in Columbus, Mississippi, to act as judges for the Reading Fair.
Fairview pre-kindergarten through fifth grade students had earlier created storyboard projects that reflected different stories the children had been reading.
The MSMS students spent Tuesday morning being delighted by their younger counterparts work.
“They were all so good,” said one MSMS student. “It was really hard to pick a winner.”
MSMS’s participation in the Reading Fair is part of the larger Adopt-A-School initiative that MSMS began two years ago. Students from the high school regularly make trips to Fairview to tutor and mentor the elementary students.
The MSMS students who participated as judges were: Shelbi Allen, Damare Baker, Nathan Carter, Raksha Chatakondi, Carolyn Donovan, Maggie Ford, Hannah Houston, Haley Hsu, Mary Lee, Kaleigh Leiva, Madeline Mixon, Jenny Nguyen, Kendall Palmer, Dipal Patel, Lauren Scott, Katherine Shelton, Nicole Thornton, and Ariel Williams.
