On Tuesday, 5th graders visited Yankee Stadium in the Bronx! The new home of the New York Yankees opened on April 2, 2009. Students were able to visit the museum and sit in the dugouts. Tour guides shared lots of facts of the stadium and gave a lot of information about famous baseball players, including Derek Jeter. Naa M (class 523) was very excited about the trip. "I have to start watching baseball", she said, "now that I'm learning about the history of Yankee Stadium, I'm interested." Five parents also took the trip to Yankee Stadium and enjoyed taking pictures of their children. Everyone was given a key chain to take home.
We are very thankful to the Yankee Stadium staff for being so kind to the boys and girls of PS4. Go Yankees!
