How Big a Check Was It?

On May 25th, we reported that Hope 6, a program of the federal government, is supplying enough money to do Phase 2 of the Old Colony renovation. How much money? A lot of money. If you can't read the fine print on that huge check above, it says 22 million dollars!

Ms. Leverett-King's first grade class got a good look at that big, big check at the end of the ceremony. It sure had a lot of digits and place values. It became an opportunity for a math lesson AND a writing lesson.


(Sorry, Senator Kerry, but you really can't blame Emani's judgment call!)
