Poetry Contest Winners

Two fifth grade Language Arts REACH students at Field School have some very exciting news to share.

In Language Arts students had the option of entering Creative Communication’s Fall 2013 poetry contest.  Two of our fifth grade students were selected among poets from 14 states plus Canada to have their poem published in the anthology entitled, “A Celebration of Poets”.  These students are Lauren Derkowski (Wheels) and Madeline Langan (Puppy Face).

Creative Communications has published thousands of student writers over the past 20 years, including Taylor Swift, who was a contest winner when she was in fifth grade.  Lauren and Madeline are in good company and deserve our congratulations! 

Jump Rope for Heart

Jump Rope for Heart week was fun for all students and a very successful event!  Field School collected $7,555.00.  This donation will make a difference in saving lives and helping people with special hearts.  In addition to curriculum activities and jump ropes, we earned $900.00 to purchase equipment for the PE program and every student will receive an American Heart Association t-shirt.  Thanks to all the supporters and for the generous donations!
