Mr. Oiler – MS English/Reading

Middle School English

Dear Parents,

Good morning! I wanted to let everyone know that all middle schoolers will be participating in the Elks Americanism Essay Contest. The theme for this year is, “What Makes You Proud of America?”. The information form was included in our Thursday Folder. We have spoken about the essay in class, but I think it’d be beneficial to speak with your children about our country and share powerful personal stories that might enhance their work and also their appreciation for your family’s experiences in the U.S. The rough draft will be due on November 5th. The final will be due November 16th.

Peace in Christ,

Mr. Oiler
