Helen Lester, author of Tacky the Penguin and many other books, visits Conn students in grades K-2 Wednesday, March 11. Students have been busy getting ready for her visit by reading and responding to many of her works. First grader are even writing their own Tacky story using her upcoming title "Tacky and the Haunted Igloo!" Thank you to Conn PTA who supports this opportunity, along with Quail Ridge Books and Music and Courtyard-Crabtree Raleigh. Watch our Twitter feed tomorrow to "join" the fun!
In addition to reading, I love to play competitive tennis; hike & camp in the mountains; garden and create outdoor art; walk Mocha, my chocolate lab; visit my son in NYC; and learn new things!
