Connetquot High School English Teacher Ross Castaldo and his ninth-grade students recently traveled to Bosti Elementary School to visit their fourth-grade pen-pals.

“The students have written back and forth with Michelle Eskin’s class since the beginning of the school year, and today they had the opportunity to meet one another,” said Mr. Castaldo.

While there, the students read books about likes and dislikes, created a Venn diagram comparing their similarities, and wrote an informational piece on a topic the pen-pals had in common. In May, the elementary students will be visit Connetquot High School to meet with their pen-pals again.
