  • Primary School Pen Pals Meet in Person

    Pen pals are usually strangers whose relationship is based primarily, or even solely, on their exchange of letters. Second graders in Mara Drill’s class at Hilltop and in Debbie Loomis’s class at Shirley Hills were likely strangers at the beginning of the school year when they became pen pals. But after a year of getting to know each other via letters, the two classes got together to meet each other in person on May 31. And they’ve now become friends.
