River Reflections

September's Big Fishes

Every student in River Class gets to be our person of the week or Big Fish. Our Big Fish is able to share every day, lead lines, and call the roll. We celebrate our Big Fish every Friday when he/she reads out his/her autobiography and answers students' questions.
