We have completed our first days back at school after winter break. I think we all felt the return came a bit premature, but it did feel good to get back in the routine.
The kids were eager to read each other’s novels, written in November, that were sequestered until now for revising. Their focus and sincerity of purpose were evident in the silence of the room. Each student should have a published work by the end of the month.
Thanks to all of you, parents, for reading to your children, providing them with books to read at home, and modeling reading and writing in your own life!
