Writing Club: Love to write? If you have a story, poem, song, or essay that you want to share, we would love to listen and give you feedback. Writing club meets every Tuesday in room A103 after school. Brain blocked? Each week we give our writer's block a theme. For next week, write about either of these topics: 1) Find a face in an old yearbook (See Mrs. Olsen in the library for help) and write a story about this character. 2) Write a story about an ordinary object, but use your imagination to make it extraordinary. 
Hope to see you there!
