South Lawrence East Elementary School
Celebrates National Handwriting Day
JANUARY 23, 2013
In 2008, 35,000 children from all over the country wrote letters of advice to our new President—sharing words of wisdom in their best handwriting, INCLUDING students from SOUTH LAWRENCE EAST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.
To celebrate National Handwriting Day on January 23, 2013, "Handwriting Without Tears" has invited children from all over the country to handwrite letters of advice to President Obama as he begins his second term in office. Our students will share their hopes for the future, words of wisdom, and good wishes – the only requirement is that the letters be handwritten!
Why handwritten letters?
Handwriting is more than a style—it's a thought process. It's the primary way elementary students communicate. Handwriting promotes an organized approach to communication, maximizes thinking time, and boosts creativity. We will use National Handwriting Day as an opportunity for our students at SLEE to show their pride in their written work by writing to the leader of our country!
