Apple Seed and Apple Sauce

Literary Magazines

This year the Spofford Pond School is again looking forward to participating in the Apple Seed and Apple Sauce program.  This enrichment opportunity is made available to local school districts through the Collaborative for Regional Educational Services and Training (CREST).

Students from grades 3-5 are able to submit literary works to be considered for publication in CREST’s Apple Seed Magazine and students in grade 6, the Apple Sauce publication.  

Both magazines are published twice a year so we will be looking now for submissions for the winter editions and for mid-winter submissions for the spring editions.  Any student, whose work is chosen by CREST interns to be published, is highly encouraged to attend the Public Launch Night for that publication.  This is a great opportunity for students to share their work with an audience of their peers (and families and friends) from across the region.  

Spofford Pond will also host a winter and a spring local recognition night for published students.

Students will be coming home with a Call for Entry notice, with more details about the process and submission deadlines, along with submission forms.

Please look for these in your child’s backpack.  Notices and forms will also be available on the Spofford Pond School website by October 13th or 14th.  

We hope your student will consider participating in this wonderful program this year!
