The 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students had all read The Small Adventure of Popeye and Elvis for their summer reading.
They've spent the first weeks of school discussing the book, making projects, playing Jeopardy and getting ready for my visit.
It was wonderful. I was greeted by lovely displays around the school.
I got to wear Starletta's butterfly wings.
The amazing Ellen Tuckner (aka Starletta) masterminded one of the best school visits of all time.
I signed a LOT of books.
They were well-used. I love that.
The students were enthusiastic, smart, friendly, polite and welcoming.
And check out this painting of Barbra Streisand drinking Yoohoo done by one of the teachers (Ms. Howell....so talented).
Thank you Mrs. Tuckner, Cider Mill students and Cider Mill PTA.
