Elaine Lawrence’s first graders proudly bring their Young Author books to the media center today. It was so difficult to pick the two best books to enter competition. ❤ Great job to children and teacher. At Northport, the entire school participates in the annual Young Authors program. The program brings joy to writing, a common language among teachers, students and parents and provides a time to have fun with words and illustrations. Each teacher turns in “Best Class Representatives,” and from those books, seven are selected to visit the District Young Authors Ceremony. At Northport, we share in the spirit and joy of writing for pleasure.
