Mitchell second graders have a blast

Scarlett Middle School’s sixth grade bilingual students, as well as some of the seventh and eighth grade emerging bilingual students, have been working with the University of Michigan soccer team over the past few months to design a community service project. 

The result was a Fun Run passport booklet they made for Mitchell second graders.  The middle schoolers then met with eight members of the soccer team Thursday to set up six educational stations at Mitchell Elementary. The older students then helped second graders have a whole lot of healthy fun at each station.
