Each month, we have a writing contest, and the topic is a response from our Book of the Month. After entries are received, each teacher chooses a winner from his/her classroom. The winning papers are displayed on our writing display bulletin board in the main hallway. The winners are recognized at our monthly awards assembly and receive a book from Mrs. Wilkes, a certificate, and a pencil. All writing is displayed on grade level bulletin boards to showcase the progression from kindergarten to fifth grade. Celebrating great writing is an important part of our literacy focus!
