AUTHOR VISITS     

  Harris invites authors to visit with the students.  They learn about what it means to be a writer and/or illustrator. 

  Authors share their story and inspire our future writers.

BOOKFAIR

  We have two Scholastic bookfairs every year.  Students and teachers enjoy finding the lastest hot books to read!

BOOKSPRING - BOOKS FOR ME!

Harris is partnered with BookSpring to provide three free books to the students two times per year.  Last year was our first event.  We had Maya Smart, Literacy Advocate and supporter and Lauren Gant from BookSpring read to the students as part of our event.  Judi Rockman (not pictured), Windsor neighbor, assisted with the event.
