Our Student Writers Rock!!!
This year’s Literary Awards Competition was a huge success! Almost 60 Rickson Ridge writers composed original stories, poems, and personal narratives focusing on the theme “Fear of the Unknown.” Some were funny, some inspiring, and some emotional. All were creative and so enjoyable to read!
Judging committees composed of various Rickson staff (including teachers, office coordinators, ECE’s, and EA’s) read all of the wonderful entries and selected winners from each of the four grade categories. Prizes and certificates were awarded to all participants at a festive “Pizza and Popsicles” luncheon on May 14.
Thank you to School Council member Sarah Evans for her incredible efforts to organize this luncheon, and to Ben Minett of the Bookshelf for taking the photos and donating prizes. Thanks also to Mrs. Patrick for her enthusiasm for organizing such a great event!
