Sixth-Graders Host Roxbury Kindergarteners at the Farm
For many years, the Roxbury Central School kindergarten classes have come to see the Manhattan Country School Farm during the sixth grade trip in June. The MCS students act as tour guides and take the kindergartners to see the animals, the hay jump, the frog pond and the classes. The kindergarteners have a chance to do something hands-on when they visit each class. So, in farming they planted some seeds; in cooking they helped mix some cookie batter and in textiles they got to handle the wool.
The MCS sixth-graders were gracious and proud hosts. The RCS kindergartners were enthusiastic guests. A good time was had by all!
