Catholic and Islamic fourth graders all came together on Friday after writing to each other for months.
The Al-Amal Islamic School students from Fridley stopped by Mendota Heights' Visitation Catholic School. The classes had been writing each other for a few months.
A teacher from the school talked of the togetherness of the event.
"The most important thing they learn is that they're more alike than they are different. They're just fourth graders," Jen Parenteau, a fourth grade teacher at the visitation school, said. "They like to play sports and videogames and have fun."
The students' day consisted of getting-to-know-you bingo, chalk drawings and other games.
