All Star Winners

For the third quarter of “Dr. Roach’s All-Star Writing Contest,” seven academic teachers submitted student work: Mrs. Bishop, Mrs. Johnson, Ms. Lambright, Mrs. Anderson, Mrs. Brummitt, Mr. Adams, and Mrs. Konczal. 

The winners this nine weeks received a star trophy and other prizes. 

1st place goes to Anna Grace Owens for a literary analysis of The Giver, by Lois Lowry, written in Mrs. Lambright’s English Language Arts class. 

2nd place is a tie between two pieces of writing.  Kalyana Saysongkham and Madison Swett earned 2nd place for their letter to Dr. Cory proposing the installation of a volleyball court outside next to the basketball court.  This proposal was written in Mr. Adam’s math class during a unit on scale drawings.  Kalyana  Saysongkham also earned 2nd place for her children’s book called “Sand Castles” which was written in Mrs. Konczal’s English Language Arts class and tells the story of how you can turn grief into something new just like you can turn a bucket of sand into a sandcastle.  

3rd place goes to Mae Hodges for her essay entitled, “Addictive and Deadly,” warning about the dangers of smoking and vaping written in Mrs. Anderson’s science class.
