Story, design, production

Read Across America Day is a true celebration of literacy. We had Ivy Vine puppets big and tiny, authors Alexandra Siy, Daniel Hayes, and Matt McElligott, a book talk with Market Block Books, and tall tales with storyteller, Kent Busman. We sang and marched and pretty much everyone had on a costume. Then there was a book sale - 25 cents bought any used paperback. The excitement of choosing a book with a quarter clutched in your palm - that is the power of literature!

Thank you Carol, our wonderful librarian, and parents who helped set up and clear up the book sale and who provided our visitors with tasty hospitality.

After school I accompanied the Computer Club to Vicarious Visions, local video game design company. No photos, please! The latest version of Guitar Hero and Marvel Comics is top secret! It's still story, design and production - in another guise. Thank you, Dan Wallace (V.V. Producer and husband of Spanish teacher Erin) and David Cooperstein '07, Computer Club teacher!

It's so nice to see a school where children are encouraged to be/express themselves
