CNE Elementary loves collaborating with other schools and programs to ensure our students have as many opportunities as possible. With the Elementary being right by the High School, the younger students are able to collaborate with the older students regularly. This past week, the fifth grade students were paired up with high schoolers to work on a writing and drawing project.
In their Art classes, the fifth graders are working on writing and sketching a short story, which includes a title, main characters, and conflict and resolution. The High School Art students will draw out each of the stories into books.
Through this project, students are learning what it means to be an illustrator and the importance of descriptive writing. When complete, the high schoolers will read the stories to the fifth graders.
CNE Elementary is looking forward to the end result and collaborating with the High School in the future.
