Student Speaker presents a Persuasive Essay to the Board
Georgianna Newenham, a 5th grade student in Elizabeth Barto’s classroom at Ella Lewis School, impressed the Board of Directors with a persuasive essay she had written with the topic of Starting School Later in the Morning. Georgianna did a wonderful job presenting her persuasive speech to the Board. Her speech was evidence of the newly implemented curriculum, Lucy Calkins Unit of Study on Persuasive Essays.
What a wonderful opportunity for Georgianna to apply her learning to a real life situation! The Board appreciated her effort and hard work and enjoyed seeing evidence of the curriculum used in RSU 24.
The Superintendent and the Board would like to thank Georgianna for her presentation and wish her luck with future essay writing.
