NMIS K2, K3 students visit public library

TWENTY-SEVEN K2 and K3 students of Northern Marianas International School visited the Joeten-Kiyu Public Library on Thursday morning.

NMIS vice principal Jener Pineda, who accompanied the students, said the JKPL staff prepared several fun and educations activities for the children.

“The children enjoyed them all,” he said. “It was a wonderful field trip and the K2 and K3 students also learned many new things about the library. Our students were really happy and excited especially during the read-aloud and cookie decoration activities. I would like to thank our state library director, Ms. Erlinda Naputi, and her staff for their warm accommodations and kind assistance.  We hope to go on more field trips because first-hand experience really is the best way for the students to learn new things and experience new places.”

Pineda said the K4 and K5 students will have their turn on Friday and next week.

As for the field trip of elementary and middle school students, Pineda said they are still coordinating with various government agencies. “We want the students to visit as many government agencies as possible so they will know what these agencies do in the community,” he added.

Last year, NMIS elementary students visited the Bureau of Environmental and Coastal Quality.

“Our goal is for our students to know how the government and its agencies serve the community,” Pineda said.
