Summer Writing Workshops Return as a Yearlong Program

by Staff Editors

For the past eleven years Simpson Street Free Press (SSFP) has offered writing and academic skill building workshops at Glendale Elementary School. More recently, the program evolved into the after-school academic academy known as Glendale Free Press. Elementary school students attending Glendale Free Press are engaged in a range of learning exercises that emphasize writing, reading, history, science, and geography. In addition to improving their academic skills, Glendale students reach their peers through work published in Glendale Free Press which stresses the importance of education to readers across Dane County.

The curriculum was designed by certified teachers and is taught by the SSFP adult teaching staff. SSFP high school students act as assistant teachers and editors. Articles crafted by our young writers are featured here in a special section of Simpson Street Free Press. Glendale writers also produce sporadic hard copy editions of Glendale Free Press. Now you can read Glendale Free Press articles in our popular online newspaper. Please enjoy these articles and their message of academic success.
