Three Students Receive Confirmation of “Published” Status!
• During the 2012 Logan Leadership Academy, students in Mrs. Pryor’s Creative writing classes several students submitted one of their writing pieces for possible publication. As a result, three students have had their writing pieces selected for publication in the “Spring Celebration of Poets” 2012 by Creative Communication Company. These students are Madison Collins, Shelby Hardison, and Tristan Taylor.
• Creative Communication is a company devoted to the promotion of writing and teaching and specifically to the appreciation of student writing. The intent of these student writing contests is to motivate creative writers. Top entries are published in an anthology that will record the creative insights of student writers.
• According to the publisher, “the purpose of our poetry contest is to bring recognition to student writers. With the publication being regionally based, students are competing against their peers in both age and location. Within the guidelines of accepting less than 50% of the poems and essays that are entered in each contest, the contest is selective so that it is an honor to be accepted, yet not so exclusive that it is discouraging to enter.”
• Congratulations to these students from the Spring 2012 Logan Leadership Academy Creative Writing Classes and students! Keep up the good work!
• Sheila Cunningham was the recipient of the Beyond Question Technology Grant, which provides $7000. The grant provides seven Student Response Systems to the school to be used across all grade levels.
• On the last day of school, students celebrated their hard work for the year by creating a music video with all 525 students. At the end of the video, each student released a balloon, sending their message of ‘Soaring to Success’. Each balloon was tagged with the name of the school, the vision statement and the school telephone number. The message also requested the recipient of the balloon to call the school to explain the balloon message was found. To date, balloons have been found as far as Dixon Tennessee. This event will be repeated at the beginning of the next school year to show students the impact they can have on the world around them as leaders.
• On June 11-15, the Lewisburg Family Resource Center will host a ‘Summer Fun’ reading camp for grades 1-5. Approximately 60 students registered for the event and games and activities centered on reading skills, comprehension strategies and vocabulary.
