Maryville School Principal
Young Authors District Judging was held at Maryville School in February.
I am proud of our 1st & 2nd grade Mustangs who wrote a story.
Winners from Maryville, who have advanced to the County Conference at Edwardsville High School are: Grayden Fisher, Kiera Spink, Brody Bremer, Brody Cell, Lyla Hickam, and Elyn Marana.
Three of these students, Kiera Spink, Brody Cell, and Elyn Marana have advanced to State, and will be traveling to Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois in May to attend this year’s conference. Designed as a celebration to honor exceptional writing by students in grades K through 8, the conference provides an opportunity for these young writers to meet published authors and to hear how the authors themselves create the characters and stories that have become their books. Our students are very excited, and we are, too! Maryville Mustangs are excellent writers!
