2021 Fall Semester Update
For our Fall 2021 semester, we will continue our classes virtually. Last year, we were forced to be reactive and close our doors for the first time in 32 years to guarantee our families’ safety. This time, we feel blessed to take a proactive approach. We want to keep innovating and persisting, so learning does not stop regardless of the COVID-19 landscape.
2021 ELAR Winners
Our Spring 2021 English Language Art and Reading classes had a challenging writing prompt this semester! All classes from 1st grade to 6th grade had the same prompt. It was a verbose writing prompt similar to STAAR writing prompts where students must showcase not just their writing skills but their attention to detail and focus. All students did a good job. Not all essays were perfect, however you can tell there was great effort and focus in writing these essays. Our teachers are incredibly proud of all the students.
First place winners were picked for their strengths in the following categories: completion of all work, clarity, grammar, creativity, originality and neat handwriting.
Honorable mention winners were picked for their improvements in writing which could be found in the same categories of: completion of all work, clarity, grammar, creativity, originality and neat handwriting.
We know many students do not enjoy writing. Some students dislike the different components of writing like grammar, spelling and vocabulary. However, these same students may enjoy different complex components of math problems. We encourage all students to not be intimidated by the writing process. Following the stages of writing and our ELAR lessons, everyone can be a strong writer! After all, with writing you can find amazing ways to express yourself, your opinions and fantastic stories!
