Congratulations to Elm Street Elementary School third grader Jesus Hernandez, who was selected as the next PCLS W-o-W! (Writer-of-the-Week). His teacher, Ms. Alysia Marcotte, submitted his opinion essay because he built “a multi-paragraph response that explains his opinion, connects with his reader, and uses strong vocabulary.” Jesus was presented with a certificate of achievement and allowed to choose a prize from the Writer’s Toolbox. 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. Jesus will be invited to read his essay at an upcoming board of education meeting.
