This past February, seventh-graders in Debra Leporati’s ELA classes read “My Brother Sam is Dead,” which takes place during the American Revolution. In conjunction with this reading, the students enjoyed a visit from guest-educator Mary Ann Knight and two Revolutionary War reenactors, courtesy of the Warwick Historical Society. (Read more about this project and the educational visit here.)

Inspired by what they read and learned, the students created their own historical fiction story, set during the Revolutionary War in Warwick, for a writing contest.

Ms. Knight returned to the middle school on April 18, to award the winning authors:

Aiden Woods, first place
Kyle Gutierrez, tied for second place
Regan Kelly, tied for second place
Emilie Ramirez, tied for second place
Luke Harrison, tied for third place
Paul Fromageot, tied for third place
