Runge Junior High Eighth Grade Advanced Writing students were recently recognized as having their original poems published in the book entitled, A Celebration of Poets.
The school was recognized by receiving a "Poetic Achievement Award." This award is given to schools who have a large number of entries of which over fifty percent are accepted for publication. Hundreds of schools enter this contest and only a small percent of these schools are honored with this award. The purpose of this award is to recognize schools with excellent Language Arts programs. These students are taught by Mrs. Shari Molina.
