Peakview kids win writing awards

by Jaime Quinn

WALSENBURG- Fourth graders at Peakview Intermediate entered a writing contest sponsored by the National Association of Family and Community Education (FCE).  The FCE members nationwide open this contest to all fourth grade students in public, private, and home schools.  This contest itself was designed to promote FCE′s literacy programs, Character Counts!, and community involvement.  The 2008 contest was designed to encourage students to understand and practice respect.

    Students in Jaime Quinn and Krissi Hunter′s classes worked hard through the writing process to develop strong ideas for this contest.  Students worked hard with their teachers, including Anna Lozano who was in the classroom while Jaime Quinn was on maternity leave, to produce excellent essays all about respect.

    This contest tied in perfectly to what Peakview is trying to accomplish through our Positive Behavior Support system as well as to district, state and national standards.  The  students worked hard, and that is a reason for parents, teachers, and the community to be proud.
