Oakton Elementary School recently won an Illinois Arts Council Grant that will be used for a fourth grade classroom program by Sue Black titled, “Kids Tell It Write!” a presentation to be used in conjunction with School District 65’s writing initiative.

Churchill Daniels, Principal at Oakton School said, “This wonderful grant opportunity is very timely given this year’s targeted focus on writing curriculum. This grant and Ms. Black’s visit create a very special and unique learning experience for our students.”

Ms. Black will present her program starting April 24 and continuing through May 9, meeting with students for 40 minutes and developing their writing skills on selected topics. The culminating activity will be student presentations of their writings at Oakton’s Fine Arts night on May 9.
