 Attention: All Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade families!
On October 4th our K-2 students will have the exciting opportunity to meet local author and illustrator, Shawn George and Jan Cohen in person! They will read aloud their heartwarming book A Place for Sam which is about friendship, inclusion, and finding your place. 
For a limited time, you can purchase an autographed copy of A Place for Sam for your family through Konstella. You don’t want to miss it!  Last day to purchase your book is Monday, October 2nd. 
Books purchased will be sent home with your student on Wednesday, October 4th after the visit.
