The PCLS Curriculum Department/Teaching and Learning Team developed the W-o-W! Program to recognize the hard work and creativity of PCLS students.
In an effort to help build a community of writers, the team encourages schools to display the W-o-W’s work and asks teachers to use the W-o-W’s work as part of their writing instruction.
Congratulations to Chestnut Elementary School 5th grader Halia Charon, who was selected as the next PCLS W-o-W! (Writer-of-the-Week.)
Halia was presented with a certificate of achievement and allowed to choose a prize from the Writer’s Toolbox. Halias’s science teacher, Mrs. Carol Peterson, submitted her writing prompt, “Friction Here, Friction There, Friction is Everywhere,” because “Each student was to take real life experiences and explain a negative and positive example of friction. (Halia) had unique examples and thoroughly explained the need of friction and when friction isn't as helpful.”
Halia will be invited to read her writing prompt at an upcoming Board of Education meeting.
