Mrs. Suzette Henry and Ms. Christina Ketchem will be holding National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) club meetings every 8th period and on Red day lunches throughout the month of November. 

NaNoWriMo is a nonprofit organization to challenge writers to speed-write a 50,000 word novel in November. 

“We’ve always been a quiet classroom to get words in, so we’re repeating that this year, but in Google Meet instead of room 118,” Ketchem said.

Mrs. Henry and Ms. Ketchem’s club encourages students who enjoy writing to participate in NaNoWriMo. 

“There are a lot of students who join us who have always wanted to try writing a novel,” Ketchem said. “NaNoWriMo provides participants with gentle competition and a community to learn from, which is a nice way to try a new challenge.”
