6th Grade Writing Project

Sixth grade students enjoyed a Christmas writing project. The focus was precise/vivid language. They exceeded our expectations, and the judges had a very difficult time making their decision. The winner won a gingerbread house kit, and the runner ups won edible paint cookies. Special thanks to Cheryl Jordan for leading the judging and BreAnn Russell for the cookie donations.
