Pen pals meet at Lampe, have a picnic

Staff reports

Pen pals from Gardnerville Elementary School and Smith Valley Elementary School met at Lampe Park for a picnic, swam at the Carson Valley Swim Center and attended a play at GES.

The students from Gardnerville were in the 2nd grade class of Marilyn Pope and Bonnie Rippee; 3rd grade class of Jill Harper; and the 4th grade class of Elizabeth Hull.

They corresponded all year long with students in the classes at Smith Valley taught by Mrs. Skaggs, Mrs. Savidge and Mrs. Scatena.

“It was so exciting for the kids,” said Rippee, to meet after writing to each other and sharing their activities for an entire school year.

Though it was the first time the children had met, they knew each other pretty much because they had exchanged pictures, she added.

The get-together for the pen pal program was held June 4.
