Congratulations to 8th grade John Glenn Middle School student Suzy Gustafson for placing 4th in the national Philosophy Slam writing contest. Suzy received a $25 prize for her work. The contest asked students to write a creative piece based on the question- Violence or Compassion: Which has a greater impact on society?
At the end of 7th grade, Suzy's story was entered into the Philosophy Slam contest. Results were posted over the summer. You can read Suzy's story online atwww.philosophyslam.org in the 7th Grade results.
Suzy is a student Dawn Gelking's Enriched Language Arts class.
Washington D.C. Trip
District middle school & high school students have the opportunity to go to Washington, DC this spring! It’s an expensive trip, but a very worthwhile, once-in-a-lifetime experience to see our nation’s capital and learn about its history. Monthly payment plans are available. Students can pick up a flyer in the office or from their social studies teachers. There was an informational meeting about the trip on Tuesday, September 22 at Skyview Middle School, from 5:30 to 6:15. Check out the trip at the following link: Explore America
