Martin Cursive Writing Academy

An exciting opportunity is about to happen:  The  Martin Cursive Writing Academy is beginning its first class from September 30, 2019 through November 18, 2019 on Monday through Thursday from 2:45 pm until 4:30 pm.  This first offering is going to all Grade 8 Students at Steelton-Highspire’s Middle School.  Mr. Martin has been concerned about the lack of training in cursive writing within the schools in general and decided to do something about it.  One of our reading specialists who has had prior experience in this area, Miss Vicki Jacobi, will be teaching the class, comprised of 25 students.  The first 25 students to sign up in the office with completed permission slips will be the first graduates of this intensive cursive writing academy.  Stay tuned!  We will be putting some of their work on display on our website as they grow in their skills.  We plan to work hard with excellent results expected and have fun doing it!


Sept 20, 2019- Well, we’re off to the races with writing in the Martin Cursive Writing Academy!!  Our very first class is small but mighty.  Savannah Love says, “It’s fun and you learn the exact proper way to do cursive letters…and all 52 letters (lower and upper case).”  We have completed three letters so far in our very first session.  Expect great things from these students.  They are motivated to succeed in cursive writing.  It’s an art form actually.  We hope that other students will decide to make the commitment to work on their handwriting.  We also have lots of fun and snacks! 


Our next session will begin Wednesday, December 4, 2019.
