Sipley School Parent Newsletter
Week of Monday, February 8, 2016
The quality of our expectations determines the quality of our actions.
Thursday, February 11
The annual Young Authors contest is underway and submissions are due 2/20! All Sipley students are invited to participate. You may write ANYTHING you want – narrative stories, nonfiction, persuasive speeches, or poems!
All submissions are due to Mrs. Ley and will be judged by classroom teachers, Ms. Makowski, Ms DeLambo and Mrs. Ley. Two winners will be chosen from each class, and will have the opportunity to attend a fun, free, half-day event at Jefferson Junior High in April.
The building winner will be invited to attend the statewide conference at Illinois State University with one winner from each other D68 school. There, you will attend workshops and meet a panel of authors for a Q&A. It is a great event.
So let’s get writing! Turn in your best work by February 20.
