We would like to give a big shout- out to some CCMS sixth graders for being local and district winners for the VFW's Patriot's Pen Contest.
Early in the year, all accelerated ELA sixth graders wrote an essay about why they appreciate veterans. Students had the option of formally entering the VFW contest after receiving teacher feedback.
Lauren Taylor won first place at our local VFW post, first place in the district competition, and fourth place in the state competition! She was honored Tuesday evening at VFW Post 6423 in Elsmere.
Other local winners were Kadyn Matthews, Mattea Meiser, and Ella Schloemer. The local winners will be recognized during the Memorial Day Parade.
Congratulations to all those that participated!
