The Winchester STARBASE Academy received a unique thank you from Ms. Welsh’s class at D.G. Cooley Elementary. The students wrote a booklet of cinquain poems about their experience at STARBASE. A cinquain is a five-line free verse, non-rhyming poem. We loved their creativity and getting to know these hard-working students.
