Our author visit with Jarrett Krosoczka was a success!Award winning author/illustrator Jarrett Krosoczka visited students in grades 3-5 March 29 - 31. Jarrett spent one hour with 4 or 5 groups at a time in the 2-8 building. Mr. Krosoczka shared all about his childhood and his interest in art and writing. He explained that he loved to go home from school each day, staple blank pages together, and create his own stories. Through Jarrett's visual presentation, students heard a strong message of perseverance. He described the difficulties he encountered as he worked to get his first book published. He shared his 8 year journey to create the Lunch Lady graphic novel series. Students and staff are still buzzing about his visit! Meeting Jarrett and hearing his talk left a strong impression on many in our school community.Special thanks to our donors for making this possible: Middle School PTO, the New Albany Community Foundation, New Albany Women's Network (NAWN) and community supporters, Lynn & Martin Redgrave and past support from Lance & Carolyn White.
