During the months of April and May, Mariposa students have been writing and publishing their own books as a part of the annual celebration of writers — Young Authors. Students from grades kindergarten to fifth wrote, illustrated, edited, and published original stories. These books were shared and celebrated through several classroom and school-wide activities.

Four writers were chosen to represent Mariposa at the Young Authors Celebration. The students are Zane Barszcz (K, Mrs. Kari McIntyre), Irie Phillips (1st, Mrs. Toni Baptiste), Alonzo Cabral (2nd, Ms. Loretta Humprey), and Autumn Thomas (4th, Mrs. Michelle Williams).

In the Picture, Jacob McCallum is having an original Young Authors book read to him while Jeremiah Brewster is watching.

Congratulations to all of our wonderful authors for their hard work!
