Northwest ISD’s curriculum team has selected the district’s elementary Writers of the Month for April 2018, honoring two students for their academic capabilities.

This month’s honorees include Rylan Lund from Haslet Elementary School and Loseli Cannon from Lakeview Elementary School. Each writer selected his or her favorite recent work to highlight for the award.

For his featured work, Rylan chose an essay about his first time visiting Houston and the city’s Space Center. He added that he likes to write fiction stories in his free time, as well as narratives since they describe his own experiences. For her featured work, Loseli chose her essay describing two reasons she is a good friend. She said the essay gave details and used similes to help the reader visualize details.

The district’s literacy coaches work with a group of campus teachers and administrators to select students who show exemplary writing performance or tremendous growth as writers. After students are chosen, each is asked to select his or her favorite work of writing and explain why that work was chosen.

Students are recognized by district educators as well as through the Northwest ISD English Language Arts program with a certificate of achievement.
