If you haven’t heard, one of the most important all school celebrations is fast approaching. The week of May 24-28 is our opportunity to honor 600 writers–students in grades PK-5, teachers and the principal. This will be our fourth annual celebration.
The week is organized into classroom celebrations which include a reading of their stories, tour of posted poster stories displayed throughout the building, and a scavenger hunt. Parents and special guests are invited to attend these events. Each teacher will be posting their celebration/tour time on their classroom blogs.
In addition to the tours of student writing pieces (displayed on lockers) and specially selected poster stories on display throughout the hallways, the rotunda will also be filled with published classroom anthologies. During the past two years, writers select their best piece to be published through an online book site called lulu.com. Please take time to see our publications in the rotunda. We will be sure to send you the link to our published stories once we have these on the lulu site.
We also have a tradition of wearing special designed Just Write T-Shirts on that day. If you would like to purchase one for your child, you can download the order form and send this into the office. Just Write T-Shirt Order Form We will accept orders through May 5.

We look forward to celebrating our writing work with you.
