I had the pleasure of visiting Glenridge Middle School last month to speak to 6th, 7th and 8th grade students about the importance of Language Arts and to judge their writing contest. I was blown away by the talent of the students there. It was so hard to rank the winners of the contest. They were all winners in my eyes. Each student did an incredible job using their writing prompts in a creative way, while managing to find their own unique voice. It was an honor to read their work and present them with awards.
I have to commend Glenridge for doing such a wonderful job fostering Language Arts in their students. Learning to develop those skills at an early age will lead to successful futures. The engaging questions I was asked during my Q&A session is evidence that Glenridge students are on their way.
