Due: January 17, 2018
Honor Our Heroes in a writing program that encourages students to discover, honor, and write about real-life heroes - role models displaying generosity, trust, persistence, dedication, leadership, creativity, caring, bravery, imagination, service, gentleness, courage or compassion. Students are asked to redefine media-hyped and cartoon heroes such as professional athletes, movie stars, and rock musicians and instead recognize someone who has made a more personal impact on the student's life such as a family member, doctor, public safety officer, soldier, or teacher.
What a great opportunity to honor someone who may not even know what a difference they are making in your student’s life!
To be successful we need your help. As teachers, you are uniquely positioned to encourage MVE student participation in this program! Students who win in their grade are recognized in the yearbook and in our awards ceremony. Winning entries in each category will compete at the county level.
All entries are due no later than January, 17th 2018. Entry forms will be provided for each student in the email sent out and on the PTA website http://ecccpta.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/HOH-2017-2018-Student-Entry-Form-1.pdf . Information about the program is available at the County PTA website, http://ecccpta.org/honoring-our-heroes . Should you have any questions about this program, please feel free to contact committee chair Mary Pearl Britto at email@example.com.
Note: I am awarding students extra credit in ELA for quality participation in this program!
