Pietzsch-MacArthur Hosts Fright Write

Pietzsch-MacArthur parents and students gathered for a night of spooky stories and pizza at their annual Fright Write. 

“Our goal was to have our families come out and have a great time, all the while strengthening a love for literacy,” said Principal Audrey Collins. “We loved this event so much last year that we decided to bring it back again.”

A collaborative effort between Assistant Principal Dr. Vannessa Bennett and Parent Facilitator Maria Mendez, Fright Write offered a span of activities for families. Students participated in English and language arts related Halloween activities, where they honed in on creative writing and authored their own scary stories. They were also able to compete and win books in Book Bingo and browse books on the ROAR Reading Express Bus. 

“We love to see our parents join us on campus and engage in their student’s learning,” said Collins. “We are truly a team in every child’s success and it was wonderful to see such a high turnout and support from our parents.”
