Author Andrew Smith will visit Central School on the afternoon of April 3. He will present to our 5th and 6th grades. Mr. Smith is an award winning YA author whose debut middle grade novel The Size of the Truth was recently published. In addition to visiting Central, Mr. Smith will be offering a writer’s workshop at The Book Stall at 4:30 on the 3rd. Anyone interested in the workshop can contact The Book Stall at 847-446-8880 for more information.
Central School 5th and 6th graders are once again participating in the Six Flags Read to Succeed program. Any student who reads 360 minutes between now and February 25th will receive a free ticket to Great America. Reading logs and an information sheet are being sent home this week. Logs must be returned by February 25, 2019. Any questions please see Mr. Smolka in the CLC.
