The students all started a Hero writing piece in class before Winter Break. Any student that would like to edit their piece and create a final copy at home to turn in for the Reflections contest can ask for a form from Mrs. Warren. Here is some information about the Program.

2015-16 Honoring Our Heroes Program
Everyday Heroes: The Power of One
Honoring Our Heroes is a student writing program designed for you to write about your real-life heroes and role models. The person you write about should display one or more of the following characteristics: generosity, trust, persistence, dedication, leadership, creativity, caring, bravery, imagination, service, gentleness, courage, or compassion.
We want you to redefine media-hyped and cartoon heroes such as professional athletes, movie stars, and rock musicians and instead recognize someone who has made a more personal impact on your life such as a family member, doctor, public safety officer, soldier, or teacher.
Essay Rules and Guidelines
Judging Rules and Guidelines
Entries will be judged on the student’s ability to articulate the qualities of the hero and to describe the manner in which the hero has impacted the student’s life.
ECCC will hold a special reception to recognize the first place winner from each grade level at each school. In addition, every writer who fits in the Special Artist category (as defined by Georgia PTA’s Special Artist category for the Reflections competition) will also be recognized.
Entries are due by January 22, 2016.
I have taught for 6 years and joined the Addison family in January of last year. I was so excited to return to the school I attended for 4th and 5th grade.
