Mega-Education and Hartford Public Schools Celebrate the City-Wide 3rd Grade Writing Competition

Hartford Public Schools' Dee Cole and Attorney Jeffrey Dressler enjoy the celebration at Annie Fisher STEM Magnet School.
 
 
Mega Education®, Hartford Public Schools, teachers, parents and students celebrated the charm, eloquence and power of the written word at Annie Fisher STEM Magnet School, Thursday evening, Nov. 7th at the City-Wide 3rd Grade Writing Competition.
 
A full auditorium, boasted parents and family members brimming with pride, as 3rd graders from around the city were honored for their hard work and dedication in competing in the preparation of an essay: From Determination to Destination: How Three Athletes Were Driven by a Dream.
 
The task demonstrated that success or achievement grows from a desire or dream that begins in the minds of ordinary people who develop into extraordinary individuals.  The students read about the lives of Wilma Rudolph, Jesse Owens and Roberto Clemente, three ordinary people who were driven to succeed and worked tirelessly to achieve their goals and earned a place in American History.  Each student wrote a 2-3 page narrative essay developing the experiences and events that led to the achievements of Wilma Rudolph, Jesse Owens and Roberto Clemente using evidence from the text.
 
A full dinner was provided for everyone and then the fun began:  the reading of winning essays and recognition of all of the City’s top 3rd grade scholars! Each student received a trophy and 4 tickets to see ‘A Christmas Story’ at the Bushnell.
 
And finally, the top 30 winners who received District Winner trophies are (drum roll please…..) Jaziona Franklin, Khalil Thomas, Christina Rodriguez, Kiara D’Addeo, Basil Mohamed, Solimar Fleming, Alexis Pagan, Danielle Allen-Devonroe, Leon Sherpard, Fred Thornley, Amanda D’Oleo, Vishaul Munisar, Fiorella Maria Arduiz Fandino, Blanca, Christian Arce, Malike Allasani, Win Ni Lar Htw, Makeeda Marshall, Ranya Bey, Janeya Grant, Josie Lopes, Isaiah Rodriguez, Elisa Connell, McKayla Webster, Leah Gustafson, Izeyah Da Silva, William V, Catherine Fay, and Dylan Foran.
 
How great it was to see us as a community celebrating this academic skill.  These students  are surely destined for college and career success!
 

With much love,
 
Attorney Jeffrey Dressler for Mega Education®
