I am happy to announce that Success Tutorial School has successfully partnered with Studentreasures Publishing for a third time on a school-wide publishing project. Studentreasures Publishing works with educators to turn student writing into published books, encouraging students of all ages to produce something that they can share, display, and keep as a memento.
What began as a way to incorporate a fun aspect into the writing component of our Language Arts programs has since grown into an amazing showcase of our elementary-level English and French students’ talent and creativity. Short stories, poetry, recipe books, and graphic novels are only some examples of the books they have published! You can stop by at any of our three locations at Scarborough, Richmond Hill, and Markham to see a sample of their creations.
I am grateful to our dedicated teachers who helped guide their students through the entire process – from the planning stages in October, to drafting and editing, to submitting of the final manuscripts to meet their March publishing date. In April, students finally received their finished products – beautifully bound books filled with their own writing and illustrations.
A huge thank you also goes to all Success Tutorial School parents and guardians for their support – they made sure their children attended our lessons regularly and encouraged them by taking an active interest in their writing.
I am extremely proud of all of the students who worked diligently for five months to make this project a success. Even with all of their books now completed, they continue to dedicate a portion of every class to working on their independent writing skills. I must say that I am even more proud of the work ethic that our students exhibit day-to-day.
Students, this project is just one of the many creative endeavours you will have the opportunity to partake in, and I hope that it inspires you to continue to exercise your imagination and passion for the written word.
