 This year the Lincoln Lion Weekend Writing Program expanded to include 16 classes and 340 students.  During the eight-week program, students spend time creatively writing over the weekend based on suggestions by the teacher or stories from class ideas.

During the kick-off week, more than 40 percent of the students spent time writing over the weekend.  

"We are so impressed with our students," said Jennifer Clift, reading specialist.  "We have illustrators adding detailed pictures to their writing."  

She said that the students spent time planning their stories and then drafted them over and over to improve them.  They wrote poems, songs and letters celebrating their families and so much more.

"Our Lincoln Lions are amazing writers," added Clift.

Ms. Ausfeld's fifth grade class produced the highest percentage of writing in the first week.
