This past December and January, 7th grade students prepared essays for the state and national writing competition, Letters About Literature, sponsored by the National Center for the Book at the Library of Congress.  Students wrote about a book they have read which impacted them or made them think differently about the world. Out of 3000 entries across the state of Massachusetts, the essays of five of our 7th grade students made it though to the state semifinals, and one essay was selected to receive one of 15 state-level honors at the State House this month! Congratulations to Maya Clemente, Jack Keane, Lucy Pelletier, and Julia Reyes for reaching the semifinals, and to Emilio Leroux-Parra for being selected for a state award!
