Sky View Middle School sixth graders experience applied learning at P.J. Keating

LUNENBURG_For the fourth straight year, sixth graders at Sky View Middle School in Leominster have gotten to see their science lessons played out in real life. The middle schoolers recently visited P.J.Keating Company’s (PJK) plant and quarry in Lunenburg as part of the school’s endeavors to bring science to life.

“The P.J. Keating quarry tour is a true definition of a field trip: an experience outside of the classroom that is not easily accessible to them and coincides with the curriculum. Visiting the quarry allows students to relate their world to the scientific world of rock study, and it’s right in their backyard, a mile down the street from school,” said teacher Sharon Salmonson.
