The Central Leadership Team and the PTO has planned an exciting school-wide writing project to support Central’s new writing initiative.

Author and teacher, Esther Hershenhorn, will lead writing workshops with all Central Students, sharing the writer’s journey, and the reader/writer connection, inspiring our students as they work to create a grade-level book.  Ms. Hershenhorn will be at our school on February 12 and April 16.  Look for future classroom volunteering opportunities to assist with this project.

Ms. Hershenhorn will highlight the philosophy of Regie Routman and her own experiences as a children’s book author.  Her website is: www.estherhershenhorn.com.

This residency is made possible through a generous grant from District 96 to support our Residency Programs.  Some fundraising will be necessary to complete this project.  The fundraising committee is finalizing details on a fundraiser.
