Writer of the Week! (4/13) - This week's WoW winner is Xenia Mooneesawmy, 4th grader from Elm Street Elementary School!

Congratulations to Elm Street Elementary School fourth grader Xenia Mooneesawmy, who was selected as the next PCLS W-o-W! (Writer-of-the-Week). Her  teacher, Ms. Tara Belisle, submitted her persuasive essay because “She is a determined reader and writer.  Xenia formed her opinion, found evidence to support her argument, and wrote a well thought out essay,” also  “because of her dedication to her classwork and her ability to apply the skills she has learned to her own work.” Xenia 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. Xenia will be invited to read from her essay at an upcoming board of education meeting.
