Meeting with local author Evan Wolkenstein last Friday was a truly meaningful experience for our 5th-grade class. Reading the JCHS teacher's award-winning semi-autobiographical novel, Turtle Boy, with Ms. Einhaus has awoken empathy, thoughtful questions, and text-to-text connections for the students. Likewise, the much-anticipated visit with "Mr. Wolk" was so personal and heartwarming that it will surely be considered a highlight of the school year!
