Contests & Special Events

7th Graders have begun working on their

Wintry Hush Posters!

Our 7th grade students will be engaging

in a winter-writing contest, entitled "Wintry Hush."

This contest encourages students to create figurative language

in the form of a "Double-Scoop" adjective. 

In addition to the creative writing in the form of the Double-Scoop adjective,

students will also be creating accompanying artwork.

Please Note: Although the term "Double-Scoop" is a Beyond Academics' creation,

the actual technique is frequently used by authors.

This writing tactic simply did not have a designated name—so we created one.

8th Graders have begun working on their

Frosty Musings Posters!

Rather than writing a  New Year's resolution, students will select a particular verb to utilize as an impetus to change.

The verb will be a personal reminder of the new direction they wish to take in their lives this new year.

They will then write a descriptive explanation of how the word will impact the positive change they seek in 2020.

This descriptive paragraph will include the techniques taught this fall. 

Please Note: While some of the contest participation will be conducted in class,

it is our hope that students continue engaging with their entries at home.
