Students in Patricia Micheli’s second grade class at the Beebe School are working on a project to promote awareness of the Northern Strand trail through Malden.

Part of the project included marching in the city’s holiday parade last month where the students wore signs promoting the path.

The class also plans to write flyers promoting the path in several different languages which will be sent home with students. This exercise is part of the class’s persuasive letter writing assignment.
