On May 15th students from Mrs. Bowman’s third and fourth grade Reading Enrichment classes participated in the Lorain County Education Service Centers Young Author Competition. Students have spent many months writing, revising, adjusting, editing, illustrating, and publishing their books in our classroom. We traveled to LCCC to listen to two amazing speakers: artist, singer and songwriter Jim Gill and author Michelle Houts. Mr. Gill taught us how to use your life as an inspiration for a song. Mrs. Houts taught us how her life inspired her novels and how authors get their books published. The culminating event was hearing our best of show nominees from grades three and four. A best of show artist and writer are selected and our representatives this year are Grace Jeffers (grade 3 writer), Jessica Jacobs (grade 3 illustrator), Ira Lavinder (grade 4 writer), and Carerra Cordero (grade 4 illustrator).Congratulations to all of our authors on using their creativity and imaginations to create amazing stories for us all to enjoy. Keep writing!

Columbia Schools makes every effort to reduce exposure and cross contamination for these children. We do not intend to make this K-8 facility a nut-free building, but we are dedicated to providing a safe environment for all our children. View our Peanut Free letter HERE
