                                                           Cumberland Trace Elementary

 

Each year students from the 212° Academy are provided the opportunity to participate in a special interest lab that is focused on book publishing. Students in the Lulu Online Book Publishing class wrote, illustrated, and published original books which were entered into the Young Writers Contest. Two books are chosen as winners for the contest and are showcased at the Southern Kentucky Book Fest on April 20-21 at the Knicely Convention Center.  The authors of the two books are also invited to sign copies of their books, along with published authors such as Loren Long, Maggie Stiefvater, and over 140 additional authors. This year the featured books are Slivers of Hope by Haley Graham and Quest for the Gemstone coauthored by Virginia Stewart and Bella Wahbeh. We look forward to seeing these young authors and many others at the SOKY Book Fest!            

   

WCPS POINTS OF PRIDE POSTER!
Districts were asked to submit photographs and narratives of Gifted & Talented students participating in enrichment activities to be compiled into a district poster that is now on display in the State Capitol during the month of February. Nearly 70 Kentucky districts responded to the request, which made an impressive display showing our legislators the importance of gifted education as we celebrate Gifted Education Month in Kentucky.
