CHSD Fifth Graders Honored for Coast Day Essays

Cape Henlopen School District
October 2, 2017

Four fifth-grade students from the Cape Henlopen School District were recognized on Sunday at the Coast Day in Lewes, DE. Coast Day is the annual open house for the University of Delaware's College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment—a leader in interdisciplinary, experiential teaching and research—and Delaware Sea Grant.

The essay contest asked fifth graders to answer the question: “How would you plan a robotics mission to discover new things about Delaware’s land, water, and air?” Winners received bookstore gift cards for $100, $75, and $50 for first, second, and third place, and teachers of the students will receive a gift to use towards classroom supplies. Honorable mentions were also awarded to students. 

From Rehoboth Elementary School, James Falk in Mrs. Subrick’s class took home second place, Brady Kosc in Mrs. Kisiel’s class took third place, and Savannah Montgomery also in Mrs. Kisiel’s class received an Honorable Mention. Shelby Manlove, from Shields Elementary, in Ms. Townsend’s class, received Honorable Mention for her essay also. 

Congratulations to James, Brady, Savannah, and Shelby!
