Award for Legenda
The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) has informed us that Legenda, the school's literary magazine, has been selected to receive a rank of EXCELLENT in the 2012 NCTE Program to Recognize Excellence in Student Literary Magazines. A total of 417 schools entered the 2012 program. The National Council of Teachers of English congratulates us and the students who produced this exemplary literary magazine.
NCTE's Program to Recognize Excellence in Student Literary Magazines (PRESLM) recognizes students, teachers, and schools for producing excellent literary magazines. The program's mission is to encourage all schools to develop literary magazines, seeking excellence in writing and school-wide participation in production. The National Association of Secondary School Principals has placed this program on the NASSP National Advisory List of Student Contests and Activities for 2012-1013.
Legenda is the literary magazine of Harrison Middle School. Fifth through eighth graders may submit creative writing and pictures for consideration. Fifth through 8th grade students may submit creative writing and pictures. Eighth grade students compose the editorial staff.
We are fortunate to have our Talents' Communication teacher and author, Charlotte Agell, as the Legenda advisor.
