Hello Stratton Elementary!

by Brad Olson

Greetings everyone!

Allow us to formally introduce ourselves: We've been working with students during this past school year at Stratton to learn about the connection between composition in writing and the artistic process, especially when it comes to creating video. You might have seen us around the halls, and some of you have helped us to document the sights and sounds of Stratton. Thank you for everything you've done so far to make our time with you enjoyable and educational! Now that we've been granted a space on this blog, we're excited to share with you all some of what we've been doing in the school so far, as well as keep you updated about what we're up to now. On this page you will be able to find examples of student writing prompts, visual evidence of our activities, and video work produced by the very talented students at Stratton. We'll also have occasional posts that will reach out to students, parents, and staff members alike to join in on the fun and contribute their own feedback and ideas. We look foward to meeting as many new faces as we can and having another incredible semester at Stratton!

Best wishes,

Instructors Brad Olson and Meadow Jones
