What We Are Learning: Basic Writing Skills

Submitted by jane.wilkins on Fri, 01/29/2021 - 14:58

“If you can talk, you can write!” says Kristi Murdock, our English teacher. This photo is our Basic Writing Skills class, where everyone receives a spiral bound notebook and each day receive a story-starter prompt. Students begin with some time to organize their thoughts and then must write for 5 minutes nonstop. Through various assignments, the class reviews the steps of the writing process: Brainstorming, Rough Draft, Editing and Publishing. Mrs. Murdock says it is fun to see the students’ progress!

Service – Tying Quilts

Submitted by jane.wilkins on Fri, 01/29/2021 - 11:33

We have a tradition of tying quilts each fall to donate to a local shelter. Tying quilts is a great group project; it goes quickly with many hands working together. It takes very little skill or experience and they make lovely warm covers. Several were set up in our main hall and remained for a few days so students could add a few stitches as they had free time until all the quilts were finished. Doing a service for someone else helps us gain perspective about our own challenges. It was fun to work together and rewarding to give back to the community.
