Power of the Pencil Writing Club
Grades 5-6


SJA would like to invite your 5th or 6th grader to join our Power of the Pencil Creative Writing Club.  This is a non-competitive, writing club whose mission is to help foster students' creative thought processes.  We will give students writing opportunities that will allow them to explore their creativity.  This group will also prepare them to join Power of the Pen next year.  Power of the Pen will be a creative writing competition team for 7th and 8th gaders who will compete against other schools.
