St. Mary students get published

Sixth grade students at St. Mary School recently learned that they are published authors. These students wrote a creative piece, “Crazy Creatures,” as fifth grade students. The writing challenged them to write a mini saga, a story in just 100 words, based on a creature they had created. In addition to their story, they illustrated their crazy creature. Their mini sagas were selected based on imagination, creativity and use of language. In all, 20 St. Mary students’ writings were selected to be presented in a collection of special anthologies. Nine of these students graduated from St. Mary School last spring and are now attending local area schools.
