Narrative Writing Contest

Glen Meadow Middle School is pleased to announce the winners, finalists, and semi-finalists in the first 6th and 7th grade 2018 GMMS Narrative Writing Contest.  


Students selected one of three story starters and authored original narrative pieces over the course of a week, working with literacy coach Mrs. Rostami and language arts teachers: Mrs. Bailey, Mrs. Basso, Mrs. Bookholt, Mrs. Grimaldi, Mrs. Mitchell, Mrs. Moro, and Mrs. Schmidt.

Semi-finalist stories were initially selected by Language Arts teachers. Then a committee read the stories without student names included and selected the finalists and the winning authors


The story starters came from Scholastic Scope:

  • Getting rich was the last thing on my mind.
  • In the darkness, all I could see of the creature were its glowing tentacles and long purple teeth.
  • The Haunted Science Lab was more than just a nickname.
