Congratulations to Elm Street Elementary School fourth-grader Kimberly Aguayo, who was selected as the next PCLS W-o-W! (Writer-of-the-Week). Fourth-grade teacher, Mrs. Molly Ratay, submitted her research essay because she “completed the research process from start to finish with finesse. She worked hard and put together a wonderful 5 paragraph paper about the Arctic Wolf.” Kimberly was presented with a certificate of achievement and allowed to choose a prize from the Writer’s Toolbox.
Her essay, "The Arctic Wolf" 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. Kimberly will be invited to read her essay at an upcoming board of education meeting.
