Students in Eddie Grimsley's class at Wilson Middle School utilized The Exeter Sun in a Language Arts lesson last week.

Grimsley is participating in the Newspapers in Education program, which supplies newspapers for each student in a participating classroom. Teachers use the papers to discuss current events, history, sports and careers.

This year classrooms will participate in Kids' Scoop, an essay contest and Truth or Dare. Kids' Scoop is a program designed to reinforce basic skills in reading and math. Truth or Dare is a special project sponsoring a Say No to Drugs program during Red Ribbon Week. The project includes an assembly with guests from the Tulare County Probation Department and rehabilitated drug users.
