The connections you can make in Boston, as well as the opportunities in the surrounding areas here, are second to none in the media industry. Being at Curry, there are so many different ways to get your foot in the door early, at places like NESN, The Boston Globe and Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots and Revolution.

Curry Students Participate in Community Reading Day at Cunningham Elementary School

April 19, 2012

 

Five members of the Curry College community took a field trip across town to Milton's Cunningham Elementary School to participate in the school's 3rd Annual Community Reading Day event in the Spring of 2012.

"We each come from different backgrounds and play different roles in our community, but a common thread that unites us is that we each have a book that was read or a story that was told that brings us fond memories," said Cunningham Principal Dr. Karen Spaulding.

 

Chelsea Munsey, a member of the Colonels Softball team with a double major in Elementary Education and Integrated Liberal Studies, and Management major/Men's Soccer player Mike Quintanilla joined Curry's Men's Soccer Coach Peter Mendel and other distinguished members of the Milton community for a morning spent sharing stories with local youth.

The Cunningham Elementary School Reading Day is an opportunity to expose students to the many people in the community who play an important role, and to learn about the many books that once played an important role in their lives.

"The experience at Cunningham Elementary made me proud to represent Curry in the community. It showed young children how important reading is no matter how young or old you are," said Quintanilla, who chose to read The Relatives Came to a third grade class.

Munsey shared one of her favorites, Daisey-Head Mayzie, by Doctor Seuss.

"It was a great experience to be able to go over to Cunningham Elementary representing SAAC because not only did we read to the students, but we encouraged them to do well in school and to keep playing the sports they love. They look up to us, and although they are still very young, when you're that age you think about what you want to be when you are older and us being there was something to look up to."

Invited guests to this year's event included State Senator Brian Joyce, State Representative Walter Timilty, Selectman Bob Sweeney, Superintendent of Schools Mary C. Gormley, Curry College Education Professor Judith Kennedy, The Davis' of Bents Cookie Factory, Chief of Police, Ricahrd G. Wells, Jr., and many others. Every classroom at the elementary school hosted a special guest from the community who read a story, described his or her role in the community and answered questions from students.

Kelly Donnelly, a sophomore majoring in Early Childhood Education at Curry, joined Professor Kennedy for the event and read Where The Wild Things Are to a wide-eyed class of first graders.  Education students will also attend similar reading days at the Boston Public Schools throughout the month.

Mendel said that he enjoyed watching his student athletes participate in the reading portion of the day, but also found the exchange that took place between them and the students to be extremely valuable.

"I think there was a good dialogue after the fact, when the kids got to ask questions and talk about the sports they like to play," said Mendel. "The athletes thought that this was a really cool community event and were very happy to be involved."

Principal Spaulding said that she was proud to see a strong community presence at her school, and believes that the event is truly one that builds connections among a wide variety of residents.

"There is nothing more inspiring than seeing a member of the community bring his or her tattered and torn childhood book to share with a child eager to listen," she said. "We greatly appreciate the time and dedication that all of our community members give to us each day."
