National Day on Writing is This Friday, October 20th!

The  National Day on Writing  (October 20th) was founded by the National Council of Teachers of English on the premise that writing is critical to literacy but needs greater attention and celebration. No matter who you are, writing is part of your life. It's part of how you work, how you learn, how you remember, and how you communicate. It gives voice to who you are and enables you to give voice to the things that matter to you.
 
We encourage administrators, teachers, and parents to share the attached flyer.  Also, refer to the  National Day on Writing  website at  http://whyiwrite.us/  for resources, podcasts, and ideas for getting involved on October 20.
