In late April, first and second graders visited with award-winning author Jessica Young. The grant was written by second grade teacher Denise Lewis and sponsored by the Kentucky Book Festival. In addition to the one-hour author visit, students received a free book, "Haggis and Tank." The students had a great time learning about the writing process, finding alliteration, homophones, similes, and metaphors, and asking excellent questions. We are very grateful to the donors -- the Elsa M. Heisel Sule Charitable Trust, Kosair Charities, and Tom Appleton -- for making this special event possible.
