Creative Writing Program
    Every child has the ability to express themselves in a plethora of ways, one of them being literature. Thus, SKA is now offering creative writing classes this summer for students to explore a new avenue and to enhance their writing skills. In this course, students will refine their skills as writers and learn story development, creative plot line formation, literary techniques, and much more. The main focus of this course is to encourage students to participate in the literature category of the Reflections Contest. This year's theme is "The world would be a better place if." Two students from each grade level will participate and represent SKA at the county level. However, students will not only participate in this yearly contest. Students will also get the chance to engage with their classmates on the subject of their written work and receive feedback from their peers to further better themselves as young, inspiring authors. All in all, this course will surely be a brilliant opportunity for our students as they venture out into the world of written word.
