Fourth graders in Mrs. Kristie Cheek's class share their informative writings about sharks with Kindergarteners in Mrs. Mary Wantland's class.

The Kindergarteners then shared their ocean artwork with the 4th graders.

The 4th graders gladly gave up a recess time to enjoy this special time with their new buddies. Pictured, from left, are 4th graders Aireonna, Desrae, and Noah.
