PTO-Sponsored Writing Workshop for the 3rd and 4th Grades: “Poetry in the Wild”

Get your pencils sharpened…
This 5-week writing workshop is led by Carolyn Berge, a former AAPS teacher and a current professor of writing at EMU, who specializes in “Writing for Elementary Teachers”. Students will examine nature, gather observations, and use their creativity to explore exciting writing projects. At the end of the workshop, the writings will be published in a King community online journal.

The workshop will be held on Wednesdays from 4:00 to 5:00 pm starting on March 12th and ending on April 16th (no workshop on Feb. 27 during break week), at King School. On April 16 we invite parents and friends to a reading of the students' work.

This workshop is PTO sponsored and free of charge to families. The number of participants will be limited to 40 students from the 3rd and 4th grades. We will fill the available slots on a first come-first serve basis. Registration forms will come home the week of March 3rd. Questions – please contact Camille Ziolek or Alisha Faciane
