WRITE WITH CONFIDENCE!
Our school is thrilled to announce a new optional writing program to help assist you with your children’s writing development. For those who have been with us for several years, you will remember the previous mandatory School Wide Writing Assignment. That program has been discontinued and is being replaced with our new, optional writing program we are calling the Writing Initiative.
Our goal for the Writing Initiative is to organize and present a collection of effective writing curriculum for students, and then provide direct parent trainings on how to best teach that curriculum at home.
YOUR PARTICIPATION IS REQUESTED!
Rather than focusing narrowly on high stakes writing exam preparation as was done previously, the new Writing Initiative will have a broad focus. It will provide online vendor product demonstrations on several of the more popular writing programs, followed by free online professional development “How to Write” training options. It is the school’s goal for the Writing Initiative to inform you about the vendors who provide effective writing services and to provide support in order for you to teach and develop your children's writing skills.
