Douglas Elementary used the following sample in the school’s electronic newsletter. You may modify it as appropriate to your school’s programs and communications.
This week, Diane Silcox Jarrett, a professional teaching artist and writer of several children’s nonfiction books, is visiting the third grade for a writer residency. The week-long residency is funded through the Douglas PTA and a grant from the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County. During this residency, students will write stories from a time period of history they are studying. Throughout the school year, several performance groups and professional teaching artists come to Douglas through a partnership between the PTA and the United Arts Council.
