Students from Roland Clark’s seventh grade English classes from Merrick Avenue Middle School had the unique opportunity to become newspaper reporter for a day.

They were tasked with completing a Newsday Kidsday section, interviewing Buddy Valastro from the hit television baking show, “Cake Boss.”

Students Dylan Cuttler, Sam Saldarelli, Emmy Rosenberg and Asra Iqbal all traveled to the Discovery offices in Manhattan to complete the interview. 
Their article was published on May 21 and can be viewed online.

Kidsday is a section of Newsday that is written by kids, covering Long Island family-friendly places, reviews, celebrity interviews and more.
