Clark, Morgan, and McNabb Students Gather to Celebrate Pen Pal Project
Clark, Morgan, and McNabb Students Gather to Celebrate Pen Pal Project
Fifth graders from Clark Elementary. McNabb Elementary, and Morgan Elementary capped off a year-long, student-led Pen Pal Project at Paducah Middle School on Tuesday, May 15. Throughout the school year, students from Paducah Public Schools’ three fifth grade classes have written letters back and forth to each other, allowing them to get to know their future classmates before they make the transition to middle school.

Last week, project leaders Myrikal Boyd (McNabb), Paige Dennis (Morgan), and Russell Hancock (Clark) coordinated getting-to-know-you activities and a large scale team building challenge event during which 36 teams of six engaged in friendly competitive games.

Prizes and gift cards, donated by parents and Robyn West of Kids Co. 1, were awarded to students for several winning categories. Ice cream was provided by the Paducah Bank WOW Wagon.

Current Paducah Middle School students Maci Robinson, Joseph Reeves, and Emmy Seaton gave the incoming sixth grade class pointers on how to best handle the upcoming transition to a new building and new academic schedule.

The event was deemed a success by teachers and administrators who noted animated conversation among new-found friends in the Class of 2025.
