Persuasive Writing Persuaded the PTA

We wanted to share this nice note from Principal Tom Jacoubowsky. The PTA board enjoyed hearing from our 3rd grade students, and we were happy to respond to their very persuasive request. πŸ™‚

Another highlight of my week came when Yasmin Shirole invited me to come into her third grade class as the students were working on Persuasive Writing. One of the pieces of work shared with me was about the need for more balls for the ballroom. After reading it and feeling persuaded myself, I told the students I would read their writing at the PTA meeting that was held this past Wednesday. As promised, I read the student’s work to the PTA. They were also very persuaded by the letter, so they approved a budget of $300 to add more balls for our students to enjoy. Fantastic work by the students and thank you to the PTA for your generous contribution!
