News flash: Lots to learn

Newspaper teaches math, science, social studies and art

Heads bent, scissors snapping, glue sticks dipping, and a song on their lips, the students in Kari McCleskey’s second and third grade combo classroom busily cut up the Payson Roundup newspaper. Shyly, Trevor Johns looks up and beckons. “Did you go to the awards banquet?” he asks the reporter. She kneels to be at his level and replies, “Yes, why?” Trevor drops his head so he can see to reach in his pocket. Carefully he pulls out a folded up paper he’s cut out from the Roundup. “My grandma won a first place,” he said as he pointed to a picture of Lisa Taylor who won a Best of Rim Country award for her work at Taylor Accounting. “Did you see her?” he asks. “Yes. I saw all the winners,” she replies.
