Cosgrove Middle School sixth graders in Andrea Page’s English class wanted to discover more about the individuals whose names are our school buildings.

The class worked in teams to conduct research, write biographies, create presentations, and coordinate a special premiere to share this history with our community.

“They must have done something right, something really profound, something worth exploring, and something worth talking about,” the students wrote. “So we set out to get to know the names on our school, as people who we can learn from and embrace as a member of our Spencerport family.”

Students, staff and community members attended the Spencerport Heroes event on June 12, and gave special recognition to members of the William Munn and Terry Taylor families who also attended.
