A Persuasive Essay Brings Basketball to King

Meghan, a King Elementary School fourth grader, used her persuasive essay assignment as a means to present her case to Dr. Tremblay on why her school should have a basketball hoop. He read her essay, worked with our Buildings and Grounds team to install a hoop, and this week, he met her at recess and presented her with a basketball - but not before reading her essay aloud to her classmates. Our students' actions do result in change both big and small. This is one small example that's making a change for some of our students.
