Celebrating Young Writers

A decade-old annual tradition at Washington School with a new twist.  Each year, as part of a non-fiction unit, Washington third graders research and write a biography about a famous woman.  The young authors then share their writing and are celebrated at a “Woman’s Tea,” to which they invite one special woman in their lives.  “This year, given our circumstances, we decided to have a “virtual Woman’s Tea” to keep the tradition going for the students,” says Washington third grade teacher Lisa Bukowsky who partners with fellow third grade teachers Christine Culver and Karen Geddis to organize the popular event.  “It was a great success!”
