Each year the Greater Dane County Advanced Learner Network sponsors a haiku poetry contest for fourth grade students. Approximately 3000 haiku were submitted and judges selected less than 40 winning entries for publication in the 2019 anthology. Three Cambridge Elementary School students were recognized for their exceptional haiku: Jill Thompson, Alyssa Breunig, and Melissa Jingga-Maron. They were invited to attend an award ceremony at Eagle School in Fitchburg on Monday, April 29th. Adam Kern, Professor of Japanese Literature and Visual Culture at UW-Madison, was the emcee for the event and one of the judges for this year's contest. Congratulations on your winning Haiku.
Our 4th graders went to both Arington Tree Farm and the SLC on Friday. Here are a few photos from their visits.
Every year Ag in the Classroom for Jefferson County has a writing contest. This year's subject was "Wisconsin Farmer's Markets". Our 4th graders wrote essays pertaining to that theme and their teachers entered them into the contest. Sofia Scicero from Ms. Jablonski's class won First Prize which was an Ice Cream Party for her classroom, a certificate and monetary prize. Macy Robinson from Mrs. Mosey's class received 3rd place and received a certificate and monetary prize. We are fortunate to have so many talented writers in our 4th grade class that two from our school were selected. Here are a few photos from the day Sofia and Macy received their awards.
