Students in Wading River School brought literature to life with
characters from Roald Dahl’s “Matilda,” a perfect match for the school’s
mission of encouraging good character traits, creativity, collaboration
and personal responsibility to achieve success.
Third-grade students in Jill Stevenson’s and Jennifer Simicich’s class
transformed into the characters and role-played throughout the day. With
Mrs. Stevenson playing the part of the gentle Miss Honey and Mrs.
Simicich as the antagonistic Miss Trunchbull, reading the story together
brought Matilda’s intellectual gifts to life.
