HMS Students Attend Mizzou Writing Conference

Ms. Tiffany chaperoned a group of 20 middle school students to Mizzou’s campus for the annual middle school writing conference on Friday, March 8. There, the kids attended four hands-on sessions led by writing project teaching consultants, including Dr. D. The theme for the conference was music, so students played with poetry, did music-inspired mad-libs, and revised their stories based on different songs, among other activities. The group from Harrisburg joined those from Oakland, Southern Boone and other surrounding schools for pizza at lunch and everyone got a cool t-shirt. As you can see from the pictures, the kids really got into the chance to dive deep into fun writing opportunities.
