This past Saturday evening I was able to share a very special moment with one of our students and her family. In April, a classroom parent came to me with a special opportunity for our students... to enter their writing pieces to ASAP in Washington, CT... a non-profit organization dedicated to providing young people with opportunities to create beautiful and meaningful works of art in a creative and collaborative environment. As mentioned in Mrs. Keilty's E-blast and prior Blog posts... one of our students was chosen. Francesca!
As I celebrated the talented Young Writers of 2016, I was able to experience the readings of exceptional poetry and prose from students as young as Francesca- to young adults! The night concluded with the honoree Ellen McCourt presenting the Frank McCourt Prize for Excellence in Teaching to an outstanding teacher. It was a very special evening!
What we're learning in first grade. Students are also making comments in class! At home add to the posts, too.
