*We are very excited to have Rosemary Wells visit our school from October 15th – 17th this year as an Author in Residence for our students.  She will be meeting with each grade level two times to discuss and share her process and inspiration for having published more than 120 books. Rosemary has a wealth of knowledge with the writing process and is excited to share her experiences with our students.

Parent volunteers are needed to act as her host on the days she is here.  Here is the link to volunteer:  Once you have signed up, Mrs. Canady, our school Librarian, will contact you prior to the event and ensure that you have everything you need.  Thank you in advance for your consideration!
