Kids Write 4 Kids Writing Contest
Kids Write 4 Kids (KW4K) is a Canada-wide creative writing challenge by the Ripple Foundation, a not-for-profit organization. At the Ripple Foundation, creativity, education and imagination are key components to success. In its sixth year, the KW4K contest invites grades 4-8 students to write stories that will be published both in print and digitally for the world to read—net proceeds from the sale of all KW4K books during 2017 will be donated to the winners’ charities of choice. In addition, winners will have the opportunity to be part of the judging panel for the following year’s contest. Learn more
Halloween celebrations are just around the corner and we have many students with wonderful, creative ideas about what costumes to wear.
What’s important to remember, though, is costumes that portray stereotypes about a specific group, culture or race can be hurtful. While we’re confident our students wouldn’t intentionally try to offend their classmates or teachers, we need to be sensitive to the fact that having one’s background or identity depicted as a costume can be viewed as disrespectful.
Elk Island Public Schools is committed to providing welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning and working environments. It is important that celebrations being held at our schools can be enjoyed by everyone—please help us ensure Halloween is fun for all of our students! If you have any questions about whether or not a costume would be appropriate, please contact Jacqui Holmes to discuss.
