    AUTHOR VISIT!!

    We are excited to announce that on Tuesday, January 23rd we will be hosting a visit with Patricia Polacco, author and illustrator of many of our favorite books including Mrs. Katz and Tush, The Bee Tree, Chicken Sunday, and Thank You Mr. Faulkner.  We are incredibly lucky that Mrs. Polacco will be spending the whole day with our students and Staff.  By dividing the students into three sessions we hope to provide an intimate setting where the students can participate in discussions with Mrs. Polacco.  Students will be reading the Author's books in their classrooms and during lunch over the next few weeks in preparation for the visit.  We would like to thank the Towanda PTO for helping to fund this exciting opportunity!
