The evening is a time to enjoy the dinner and for you to see the books that your child and his or her friends have written! From 5:45-6:30, all of the classrooms will be open for parents to view the books Thanks to everyone who has made contributions to provided by The Society of 1904. The funding for all of the materials and activities surrounding Young Author’s Day came from that foundation. Many people say writing is a lost art. The Young Author's Day is a step in motivating our boys and girls to develop this crucial life skill.
