A Great Author Visit!

Third, Fourth, and Fifth graders were visited by Cheesie Mack author, Steve Cotler. What a treat for our students! He spoke to kids about the characters Cheesie and Georgie and about his other books. He was right - there was a lot of laughing in his presentation! Thank you, Mr. Cotler! We hope you continue to be rich in happiness!

Plus laughing...lots of laughing!”
