Congratulations to Harvey High School sophomore Stephanie Cicconetti, who was selected as the next PCLS W-o-W! (Writer-of-the-Week). Intervention Specialist, Ms. Erica DiMarino, submitted her narrative because “Stephanie did a great job not only answering the question for her first PBA assignment, but did so in such a descriptive manner that I was captivated by her narrative just reading it. She has a great talent for storytelling and a way with words that draws the reader in wanting more.” Stephanie was presented with a certificate of achievement and allowed to choose a prize from the Writer’s Toolbox.
Her narrative "On One's Lonesome" can be viewed below.
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. Stephanie will be invited to read her story at an upcoming board of education meeting.
