Fourth and fifth grade students have been celebrating author Beverly Cleary's 100th birthday during their Media Center visits this week. Mrs. Medlin has been sharing facts about Cleary's life and reading excerpts from a few of the books. "My favorite part of the Ramona books is when Ramona can't help herself and she squirts out a whole tube of toothpaste!"
Many of Poplin’s fifth grade students visited Washington, D.C. the week before Spring Break as a culminating activity to follow-up on all they have learned during Social Studies this year. Students have been learning about key events and people that have shaped United States history.
