During a typical school year, we stay busy keeping students engaged in their school communities. School connectedness has been proven to have an impact on academic performance and social-emotional learning and wellness.
It’s no surprise that we had to get a little creative this year. Thus the ‘Fall Into Writing’ contest was born. We chose to run it during the month of November to celebrate National Academic and Fiction Writing Month.
Despite being an entirely new venture and the hurtles facing our students as they try to stay focused on school, we had some good turn out, and some definite winners!
