Partners in Literacy - Gotwals Elementary School and Arcola Intermediate School
Gotwals Elementary School in the Norristown Area School District partnered with Arcola Intermediate School over a six month period in a love of writing. Twenty-three esteemed fourth grade writers attended the inaugural literary magazine reception for students from both schools.
The students of Arcola's Writing Mentor's Club have strived to help promote the love of writing among their younger colleagues in Norristown. The Gotwals students wrote poems, penned stories, and drew pictures for the magazine, which were then curated and edited by the Arcola students. This fantastic collaborative experience culminated with the presentation of beautiful bound magazines for the students to take home after a reception in the Arcola library.Gotwals Students Thank Arcola for Literary Journey
