“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”

Jane Ausen (British Novelist and Writer, 1775-1817) Northanger Abbey

TIME: 8:55 AM
PLACE: Junior High School Lobby
SUBJECT: DramaQueen

Each year our school district encourages the students to develop original stories to practice good writing.   All children from kindergarten through eighth grade, as well as special classrooms, are encouraged to participate.   The best writings from each class are honored at an assembly.  At this assembly, the best manuscript from each school is announced.  Those students then attend a regional "Young Authors" conference in April.  Today, DramaQueen was honored for her story entitled "Camp Jumble".  Although her manuscript did not receive the "best of school", we are still so very proud of her!
