PressFriends and the Palos Verdes Library District are holding a special Mother’s Day PV Kids News workshop for third, fourth and fifth graders on Saturday, January 12 from 2-4 p.m. at the Library’s Teen Annex (627 Silver Spur Rd. Suite 210, Rolling Hills Estates, CA 90274 — in the upper section of the Village Shopping Center facing Deep Valley Drive). PressFriends is a mentoring program, in which elementary school students work with middle and high school mentors. Our motto is “Making Friends While Making Writing Fun.” The kids play games as well as write articles and stories, so if you’re looking for a fun activity, this is it. But if you are looking for a tutoring program in writing, this is not the program that you are looking for. Sign up here: http://tinyurl.com/pvkidsjan2013
Each student reporter will bring a favorite book to review. The students will also write a story about why their mother is special to them. Every reporter who works with a PressFriends middle or high school mentor, and has the mentor sign off on his or her article, will have at least one article published. PressFriends, at its discretion, will choose the best article to publish in PV Kids News. However, if there is space available, more than one article may be printed. Reporters will take their articles home to type and email back to PressFriends.
PressFriends are middle and high school kids who will work with you on writing articles for PV Kids News. This workshop is a mentoring program, and the 3rd -5th graders who sign up must work with a mentor. We also play a lot of games, which makes for a fun program for both the elementary school reporters and our teen mentors.
PVLD’s Teen Annex is located next door to the Peninsula Center Library in the upper section of the Village Shopping Center, facing Deep Valley Drive. The exact address is: 627 Silver Spur Rd. Suite 210, Rolling Hills Estates, CA 90274
