Riley students team up with residents for writing project

Together they are working on year-long writing project that will culminate in a storybook detailing the interests, activities and some personal history of residents, as composed by the students.

Students visit Bishop’s Commons once a month to interview their resident partner and take what information they learn during the interview to compose a new chapter in the storybook.

At the completion of the writing project at the end of the school year, students will present their resident partner with the storybook they composed.
