Academic Enrichment is offering two options for journal sharing over the summer. Option 1: Students are paired to write in a journal which can be passed back and forth via mailbox. Option 2: Two or more students can take turns writing a page of a story. One student picks up where the other let off so by the end of summer they have a completed story. School appropriate, of course. Journals can be passed back and forth via mailbox. Journals are provided by the PTA but run independently once they are established. All grades. Questions? Contact: Michelle Brunone.
