Decas Elementary teacher Mike Houdlette gives students the latest copies of their stories to revise.

Decas Elementary 4th-graders who are working on publishing a school newspaper this spring got a little help from mentors at Wareham High on Tuesday.

John Flynn’s high school journalism students, who recently published their spring edition of “The Viking Times,” assisted Mike Houdlette’s elementary students with editing their stories, choosing the ones that would appear on their front page, and worked on laying out the paper.

We can’t wait to see the published product!

Jeffry MacDougal and friends fill bags for Cradles to Crayons.

As part of his participation in Governor Deval Patrick’s Project 351, Jeffry MacDougal and his fellow students at Wareham Middle School collected 13 bags of clothing during a “Spring Greening” effort benefitting Cradles to Crayons.

Cradles to Crayons provides clothing and supplies to children who are low-income or homeless. There were nearly 600 items collected in Jeffry’s effort! The items were delivered to Wareham Ford, which serves as this area’s drop-off point.

Project 351 aims to shape the state’s future leaders. There is one 8th-grade ambassador from each town throughout the Commonwealth. Jeffry is expected to lead community service efforts here in Wareham, as well as collaborate with the entire Project 351 team throughout the year.
