Welcome to the Home of WriteStuff!
The Write Stuff Program is a PTA-sponsored, voluntary creative writing program, currently celebrating its 10th year. Students in grades 1-4 receive a prompt five (5) times during the school year, beginning in the month of September. Kindergarteners receive prompts four (4) times a year, beginning in October. All students are given two (2) weeks after the prompt is distributed in the classroom to complete. Prompts have included current event questions, writing letters to the military, composing a story, or simply answering questions about an upcoming holiday. Artwork is always welcome. Write Stuff submissions are not graded, but they are read by PTA Reading and Literature Committee Members. Compositions and drawings are displayed each week on the PTA Write Stuff bulletin board outside the library, so they can also be read by students, staff, and visiting parents. For each prompt written, a fun token is distributed the following month. Participants are acknowledged in our monthly “Write Stuff Honor Roll” found in the Friday packet. The 2012-2013 school calendar will list all prompt distribution and due dates. Prompts are also made available on this website.
