#8220;They are taking pictures and writing about what is happening here,#8221; she said. #8220;You#8217;ll see it soon in the newspaper.#8221;
#8220;They get to know other students, so it gives them a jump start both academically and socially,#8221; said Alicia Tizol, mother of boot camp attendee Nora Tizol.
Next was writing each student#8217;s first name on a whiteboard to see which child recognized their name in print. That lesson was broken down further to see which letters within their names the students recognized.
With a writer and photographer from this news organization visiting the class, Sutton also took the opportunity to give students a small lesson on newspapers.
