Help Us Become Writers #4091

Help us travel to the Plum Creek Literacy Festival at Concordia College in Seward on September 29, 2017! We need bus transportation to learn from real-life authors that we have spent time studying about. We get so excited to read books by these authors and try out some of their writing techniques in our own writing. We learn about what made these authors keep persevering even when they did not succeed on their first try. It is beneficial for our students to understand and value the skill of perseverance and determination!

Your gifts will help students listen to real life authors that we have studied in a small group setting. The students will also have the opportunity to ask questions. We appreciate any and all support to get our writers excited to create compositions of their own!

Deadline: 8/10/2017
