We are excited to announce that Jason Miller, a student in Mrs. LaMarche’s 2nd grade class was named a 2018 state of Connecticut winner in Zaner-Bloser’s annual handwriting competition!! Mrs. Zorger – along with Jason’s parents – surprised him with the award this morning after announcements. The contest recognizes two students per grade – one from a private school and one from a public school – in each state as part of its national handwriting competition. Our second grade teachers – the only grade from SJS to participate in the contest – has selected Jason’s entry from all of the SJS 2nd grade students to submit to the state level. Jason’s winning writing sample will now be submitted to the national level.
Mrs. Lamarche also received a special award (being presented to her by Jason below) as well as a $200 coupon that the SJS 2nd grade classes can use towards additional writing/Zaner-Bloser materials!
Congratulations to Jason, Mrs. LaMarche, and the entire 2nd grade!
