KidsPost toy team did a seriously good job at playing with toys

Third grader teacher, Elle M. Carabetta - Randle Highlands Elementary School third graders: Shaniyah Robinson, age 8 and Trayvon Owens, age 8 and Nikia Green, age 8

Our colleagues at Newspapers in Education (NI E), which gives local schools access to The Washington Post and other resources, found eager toy testers for KidsPost at 10 NIE-participating schools. Thank you so much to the students who worked (and played) hard for this year’s test:
