Jennifer Lester’s 3rd grade class at Scott Elementary is participating in "The Flat Stanley Project." The project is based on "Flat Stanley," a whimsical short story that follows the adventures of a young boy who finds himself to be only a half inch thick after a bulletin board falls on him in his sleep. For many years, classes around the world have participated in the project by sharing information about their schools and communities. Scott Elementary's Flat Stanley’s were mailed out to schools around the United States and as far away as Europe in hopes that the class receiving the package will take Flat Stanley on adventures and return the package sharing information about his visit. The project helps students learn about different schools, communities, and cultures.
