Writing Workshops

Our writing workshops will focus on helping students in 3rd-7th grade build a cohesive essay. Students will learn the foundations of proper research and preparation, expression, and execution. Students will learn skills that will prove useful to them as they write creatively or for class. Students will engage in various fun activities throughout the 4-day workshop. The curriculum was created in conjunction with a Scholastic Gold Key recipient. Dates are on the sign up form.
