Booth Hill students enjoy 'The Mouse and the Motorcycle'

Booth Hill School students and teachers learned in an assembly recently that they will all be reading The Mouse and the Motorcycle, by Beverly Cleary this month. Teachers put on a play for students recounting the beginning of the book, when an adventurous mouse named Ralph decides to ride a toy motorcycle. Students cheered when third grade teacher Tammy Baillargeon, dressed as Ralph, got on a real motorcycle, pretending to ride it and falling off and landing in a garbage can. “It was really exciting to do because I love building school spirit and making learning fun,” she says. Third grader Ellen Matzke says, “I can’t wait to read it! It seems like such a great story!”
