RAHWAY — Franklin Elementary School in Rahway recently held a “Writers’ Roundtable Challenge”. Students in grades three, four and five were invited to participate in the principal’s writing initiative.
In order to pass the challenge, students had to follow all of the outlined rules. Some of the rules included writing a two-page speculative essay about why the principal called for a special meeting with the entire fifth grade. Students had to use at least 10 of the vocabulary words from a list given to them and use proper grammar and punctuation. The students rose to the challenge, and all who successfully completed it were rewarded with a pizza party in the cafeteria with the principal, Arina Robinson. During this time, students also had the opportunity to share their essays with each other.
