Silver Pens Writing Contest

This spring, our fantastic fourth-grade students participated in the Silver Pens Writing Contest with the Kiwanis Club of Lost Mountain. Honorable mentions were earned by Sophia Graham, Emmy Schwab, Layla Dunn, Emmanuel Mbanya, Jude Fountain, Jennings Allen, and AJ Rivers. Congratulations to the finalists from each class: Grant Morin, Izzy White, and Payton Tamborra. A very special congratulations to Matthew Jones for being awarded our Silver Pens school-wide winner! Matthew is invited to read his prize-winning paper at the next Kiwanis meeting in May where he will receive 20 Gold Dollar coins! Great job fourth grade writers!
