HPS Office of Early Literacy and Mega Education Team Up on the "Get Greedy for Writing" Contest.
This is Cityra Riley, an adorable 3rd grade student, right? Right! But she is also one of the two super-smart, really hard-working grand-prize winners of the "Get Greedy for Writing Contest" in which many super-smart, really hard-working third graders from around the district competed for the top prize of best essay entitled, "From Determination to Destination: How Three Athletes Were Driven by a Dream." 15 students won the prize of treating themselves and two family members to the opening night performance of 'The Grinch" at the Bushnell.
Cityra, a student of Carmelina Miceli from Global Communications Academy, and Reilly Fournier of Noah Webster Microsociety Magnet School, as the top writers, were also able to treat their families to dinner and a limousine ride to the theater,where Cityra is pictured above with her aunt and grandmother.
