"Fieldhouse" Author Assembly Today!
Wed, Feb 7 9:29pm
West Valley Elementary

Thank you to the Fraleigh Family for donating today's assembly!

 

All West Valley Students attended an author assembly today, by Scott Novosel.  

 

Scott Novosel, the author of "Fieldhouse", came and told the story of his graphic novel, describing his quest to accomplish a goal he set for himself when he was 10 years old.   He used the story of his dream to play basketball for the Kansas University Jayhawks,  to outline for the kids, what it takes to achieve any dream: 1) challenges, 2) a positive attitude, and 3) teamwork.  Throughout the story, he pointed out that it is not the outcome of trying that should be focused on, (Scott failed to make the Jayhawks team the first 2 times he tried), but the effort put in to keep trying and not give up, to be the the best you can be, and to continue taking small steps in the right direction.
