Due to a district training I was not in the classroom much during the window of time for the Fontana Teachers Association’s Women’s History Month contest. That doesn’t mean I wasn’t able to select student work to submit, it means I was unable to work with all third graders at Grant to have the same kind of showing we did in the Civil Rights in America contest. I am very pleased with the work my students did in a very short amount of time. I would have liked to have had some multimedia projects as well, but again having enough time was the issue. I hope FTA will have another contest in April so I can help Grant have another strong showing in all categories. Without further ado, here at the 3rd graders I have selected from my class to compete in the FTA Women’s History Month:
Essay Contest: Jordan, Sofia M, Joseph, Sophia H, and Jenna.
Art Contest: Priscilla, Jazmin, Chelsey, Jenna, and Jacob T.
Congratulations to all of my 3rd graders for their hard work and to those students whose work was selected. Letters from FTA will be going home with the selected students tomorrow. The awards ceremony will be on Thursday, April 17, 2014 from 4:45-6pm at the FTA Office, 16850 Seville Avenue, Fontana, 92335.
