Fifth grade Dual Language students at Atkinson school honored the memory of American professional baseball player Jackie Robinson by celebrating Jackie Robinson Day. This took place on April 15, as it is the same day Jackie Robinson broke baseball’s color barrier when he made his historic Major League Baseball debut in 1947. Over the past two months, students participated in many reading and writing activities that reflected Jackie’s legacy and commended his life, values, and accomplishments.
