What is English Festival!

Our school has been participating in the English Festival competition since its start over 20 years ago. Our English Festival team meets every Tuesday throughout the year. We read and discuss four different books each year.

  • This year we have been reading: Out of My Mind, Lost in the Sun, Fuzzy Mud, and The Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.
  • The team is made up of 4th-6th grade students. Our 2017-2018 teams is:
  • Teacher Moderators are:  Mrs. Sue Zutter and Mrs. Melanie Kutchell

We will be competing on Friday, May 11, 2018. There are 3 events: Trivia, Insight, and Card Matching. We are so excited to compete against over 50 different schools from the Pittsburgh Area. Each year a different author is chosen to speak to the students. This year Sharon Draper will be the featured author.

I would like to thank our team for working so hard throughout the year. I hope that everyone does their very best at the competition and joins us again next year.
