Skyping with Shaq!

November 7, 2012

Every year the sixth grade students learn to write business letters in language arts class.  The students write to professional athletes, singers, actors/actresses, family businesses, local businesses, and anyone that they are interested in, asking for items to donate to our reading auction at the end of the year.  This year, Sydney Richer, a student in Mrs. Welch’s class wrote to Shaquille O’Neal.  By surprise, Shaq’s father called our school, Riverside Intermediate, asking what kind of items he could donate for our auction.  After several phone calls with Phillip Harrison, Shaq’s father, a skyping session was set up for all the Riverside students to hear what Shaq had to say about education and to enjoy his sense of humor.

Thank you Mr. Harrison and Shaq for making this happen!
