Samuelson ELL Students Visit Drake University
ELL students at Samuelson Elementary School took a field trip to meet their semester long pen pals at Drake University. The 4th and 5th grade ELL classes have been writing the Drake education students since September, and they finally had a chance to meet on December 4th in Meredith Hall.

After a pizza party and a campus tour, the classes split into smaller groups and played games to interact with each other. The field trip was designed to make writing a “real and meaningful experience” and to teach the students about higher education and the importance of staying in school.
