Writer of the Week

Congratulations to Heritage Middle School seventh grader Hugo Garcia-Hernandez, who was selected as the next PCLS W-o-W! (Writer-of-the-Week). His English language arts teacher, Mrs. Shannon Edwards, submitted his myth because “Hugo's piece had great flow and was stylistically parallel to other myths we had previously read. I liked that his dialogue was formal, and his plot was well formed.” Hugo 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. Hugo will be invited to read his myth at an upcoming board of education meeting.
