Find out at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 24 when 8th grade students from Pioneer Middle school in Steilacoom share their thoughts about WASL-ing and other spring topics.
After all, April is National Poetry Month.
Where better to hear Poetry than in a Coffee House? This literary evening, showcasing student poetry will be held at Forza in DuPont at 5120 Wilmington Drive.
Pioneer 8th Grade Language Arts teachers Mr. Milton and Mrs. Brown have arranged the literary evening.
‚ÄúThe challenge about this topic,‚Äù explains Mr. Milton is to ‚Äúmake and describe an interesting contrast using the 14-words available‚Äîno reference to ‚Äúboring‚Äù or ‚Äúvideo games‚Äù allowed. The writing challenge comes at the end of the annual state-wide WASL exams.
Mark the date on your calendar and come prepared to enjoy some interesting ‚Äútakes‚Äù on the ‚ÄúBig Test.‚Äù
Note: Pioneer Middle School students will move to their new school in DuPont when it opens in late August for the 2008-09 school year.
