The Brainstormers Visit Howard

The Brainstormers! visited Howard Elementary School recently to encourage our students to become better writers. Through this interactive assembly, students reviewed elements from the Writing Process: Characters, Setting, Activity, Problem, Solution and Title. Students were entertained during this hour-long assembly and were encouraged to, “Think it Up! and Write it Down!”. We are excited to welcome them back in February to perform some original writing pieces written by our students. The Howard PTA and The Studios of Michigan sponsored this assembly.

Does this sound like a school district that needs to be overhauled, reformed, and taken-over by a state controlled board? I don’t think so, but obviously some legislators in Lansing do.
