Gordon Korman

HP Families Grades 5-8,

As previously shared,  Author Gordon Korman will visit HP on Tuesday, January 9th. Separate from his large group presentations and One School, One Story kickoff, there is a writing contest opportunity for 25 students in grades 5-8. Selected students will be part of a private writing workshop session with Mr. Korman. 

Yesterday, January 2nd, all students in grades 5-8 received a lesson in ELA classes in which they viewed a video and engaged in class discussions about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Students then all received the same writing prompt:

Prompt: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. used his words to inspire change. How can your words be a tool for inspiring positive change?

Students received class time on Tuesday to get started. However, those interested in submitting their response must do so by Friday, January 5th using this Google Form. The response limit is 500 words. 

More information will be forthcoming this week about our One School, One Story kickoff! As a reminder, all 5th-8th graders will receive a copy of Linked to bring home courtesy of the HPEA.
