The district would like to congratulate Bosti Elementary School fifth-grade student Natalie Strekowski for being named a national winner of Storyworks Magazine’s Titanic Contest.

Utilizing her creative writing talents, Natalie wrote a detailed paragraph describing her resemblance to her great-grandmother, following a set of guidelines from the magazine which asked her to incorporate two nouns that mean “a copy,” one verb that means “to copy,” and on idiom that means “an exact copy.” The students’ writings from both Kim Patterson’s and Joanna Zalewski’s classes were then submitted to the national contest, a program sponsored by Scholastic designed to support students love for reading and writing. 

Natalie’s entry was so extraordinary and full of detail that she was declared one of five winners throughout the nation, and was rewarded with a token of appreciation and an official “Storyworks” journal to continue her writing journey.
