RAHWAY — Franklin Elementary School in Rahway recently held a “Writers’ Roundtable Challenge.” Students in grades three, four and five were invited to participate in this 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 sensible persuasive essay that consists of at least three paragraphs, using at least 10 of the vocabulary words from a list of words given to them, and using proper grammar and punctuation. The students did a great job and really rose to the challenge. All of the students whose writing piece passed the challenge were rewarded with a “Make Your Own Taco” event in the cafeteria with the principal, Arina Robinson at which time students also shared their essays with each other.
