DOVER- Dover Elementary School’s fifth graders have spent the last two months researching the history of the town. In August, their research will be displayed in kiosks along Route 100. 
Last summer, local historian Jim Dassatti approached Dover International Baccalaureate Coordinator Sue Neuman and asked if she would be able to get some local students involved in a town project. Neuman enlisted the assistance of Bridget Cole’s fifth grade students, and the rest is history.
