A beautifully written piece. Liesl is such a gifted writer. I'm thrilled for the kids in Mrs. Murphy's class. What an awesome learning opportunity. I wish more kids would be given the opportunity to participate in the event.

I'm so proud of Room 25. I happen to be a mom of one of the kids. And, not only did she grow tremendously from her year with Ms. Murphy and Mr. Ruth, but the classes together became such good friends. We will miss Mr. Ruth's class next year, since they are moving to Encinal. Thank you for this article, it's a lovely memory of the 2nd grade.
