Gillispie Students Shine!
We are always in awe of the way our students shine inside AND outside of school.
Just this week, we saw Emma in Grade 4 highlighted in the San Diego Union-Tribune as the winner of Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Steve Breen’s caption contest. Over the past two years, we have had other budding creative writers published.
Emma was a K-12 Winner with her witty caption, “So who wants to top off this meeting?” for Breen’s illustration of congregating condiments (see above).
We also watched Gillispie Alum Isabella Leone (now in Grade 8 at The Children’s School) speak with eloquence on CBS News 8 about her experience watching Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman’s address at yesterday’s presidential inauguration.
Gorman spoke virtually to Leone’s class last June, and during her interview, Isabella stated, “I feel like she addresses so many different issues and I feel she puts things into words that other people are afraid to say sometimes.”
Needless to say, we are so proud of our students, and we love cheering them on through all of their accomplishments.
