Lessons From Nothing
Monk's Café became the School of Athens as Jerry Seinfeld, George Costanza and Cosmo Kramer sat down for their meals, pontificating on life, relationships, our needs, and the vital importance of the second button's placement on a shirt . . . .
This year's narratives, poetry, class books and essays focus on the unique, compelling and engaging Voices of kindergarten through 12th-grade students.
Voices features award-winning entries in the district's annual writing contest. The book also honors winners in other local, state, national and international writing contests throughout the year.
Voices is coordinated by Alita Miller, language arts program specialist, and Kathleen Victorian, curriculum technician.
