2011 Gift Guide



The Cunniff Kids News

and Watertown Splash

2011 Gift Guide


     Since the launch of the Cunniff Kids News at Cunniff Elementary School in December 2007, and the birth of the Watertown Splash at Watertown Middle School in September 2009, dozens upon dozens of people have helped the hundreds of student reporters -- from pre-K through 12th grade -- who were looking to write interesting stories about interesting people, places, and things.

     With that in mind, in this season of giving, here are but a few ideas taken from the pages of the Watertown Splash and Cunniff Kids News (along with links to their accompanying stories where possible).

     For more from Watertown’s student reporters, go to the homepage of the Cunniff Kids News at http://teacherweb.com/MA/WatertownCunniffElementary/Newspaper/NewsFlash.stm, or the home of the Watertown Splash at http://my.hsj.org/splash.

     Thank you so much for reading!
