NH-S Celebrates National Day on Writing
On October 20th, a group of New Hope-Solebury High School students visited 2nd graders at the Lower Elementary school to celebrate the National Day on Writing.
The reading specialist at the high school, Emi Lengyel, and the reading specialist at the elementary school, Nancy Rachlin, arranged for approximately seventeen high school students to work with four 2nd grade classrooms. The older students volunteered to work in groups with the younger students to help them write creative Halloween stories.
“Intergenerational activities such as The National Day on Writing affords both high school and elementary school students the opportunity to connect and interact,” remarked Lengyel. “The continuum of intergenerational activities is endless and for that reason we look forward to meeting with the younger students later in the year.”
The National Day on Writing was established by the National Council of Teachers of English to draw attention to the remarkable variety of writing in which we engage.
