Academy Street Elementary School first graders have been busy learning strategies to solve mystery words that they discover when reading. In connection with this learning, a special visitor recently stopped by to praise them for their work. 

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Timothy Hearney visited the building and revealed to the students that, in addition to helping to run the district, he also works as Agent X, the head of the Super-Secret Detective Agency. During his visit, he led the students in reading an oath and inducted them into the reading agency. Each student then received a certificate and a “top secret detective notebook” to keep track of the mystery words as they read.
