Author and Illustrator Visits

We had two AMAZING days with author Kim Ridley and illustrator Rebekah Raye.  We are all so grateful to our PTA for sponsoring these visits.  It was very special to have a writers workshop with a real author, and an artists workshop with a real artist.  Thank you PTA!
