We ask that students be available to attend all three weeks as each week will build upon previous sessions.  Student registration opens September 12th.  Just call or come in!  Make sure to include the student's first and last name, grade, and best parent contact phone number.

We will write, draw, create, and act out scenes from the book as we go along. This class will most likely run 8 weeks, depending on how quickly Miss Devon can read it out loud! See blog for book synopsis.
