Last Week at Sand Point…

Thank you to Mr. Manzo for coordinating with Third Place Books for an author visit from Julie Fogliano and Christian Robinson, creators of Just In Case You Want To Fly and When’s My Birthday?

Super fun learning for our Squirrels! Julie Fogliano and Christian Robinson spoke to our students about what inspires them, a little about how they grew up, where they come from, and how they came to their craft. I loved how they included pictures of their desks and work spaces as well as pictures of themselves as kids doing what they loved: reading and drawing. Great inspiration for our students in demonstrating how they too, can pursue what they love.
