12 Green Valley ElementaryStudents Madelyn Roe and Alex Hillman with Jennifer Ward at the author luncheon
On Oct. 24, author and illustrator Michelle Nelson-Schmidt visited Green Valley Elementary to speak with students in kindergarten, first and second grades. She talked to the kids about the writing process and illustrating, and encouraged them to never let the “Whatif Monster” make them think they can’t do anything in life that they want to do.
Children’s book author Jennifer Ward visited Green Valley on Nov. 2 to share with kindergarten through fifth grade students the importance of reading and writing. She read her books to students, helped students put on a readers theater using one of her books, had lunch with six lucky students, and encouraged students to keep reading and writing.
