A book project night was held for the parents and the community. Students illustrated their knowledge of the story by creating journals and other artifacts. Teacher Rae Mask thanked Libraries, Ltd. for the books, stating, “This was a highly successful project which helped students develop empathy skills and better understand how other students’ home lives can impact their daily interactions.”
