Claire C. and Dylan K. had the opportunity to interview Joyce Hill Westerman, former ballplayer for the All American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL.org) yesterday at the Wisconsin Historical Society's Lunch and Learn at the Racine Public Library. The students had been working on a paper about the Racine Belles for their history class when their teacher, Mr. Alan Mills, was able to arrange the interview with Mrs. Westerman. Mrs. Westerman and another former ballplayer, Ms. Anastasia Batikis, answered the interview questions with warmth and humor.

Our PS students "booked" their trip today to Read Around the World. Mrs. Hagopian started our trip in Armenia where we read the Caldecott Medal winning folktale One Fine Day by Nonny Hagrogrian. The students received an Armenian stamp in their reading passports.
