The Writer's Game

OES 3rd, 4th and 5th graders were treated to the wisdom of Mr. Chris Grabenstein as he taught them "The Writer's Game".  Each grade level helped him create a hilarious story and learned tips about how to be an engaging writer.  Thank you FOESL for helping bring him here to the Lower School Library!

Welcome Chris Grabenstein!

Tomorrow is the big day as we welcome the author of "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library". With support from FOESL (Friends of the OES School Libraries), Chris Grabenstein, will meet with our 3-5 grade students.  Each 4th and 5th grader has received his or her own copy of the book and joyously read it in preparation for the visit!  In fact, there are numerous students who have read it numerous times because they liked it so much!  Stay tuned for pictures of the event.

Fall Author Visits!

Lucky us!  We will be welcoming at least three authors and illustrators this fall to our Lower School Library.  Thanks to Powell's, Tom Watson and Stick-Dog will visit with our 2nd and 3rd graders on Friday, September 19th.  With support from FOESL (Friends of the OES School Libraries), the author of "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library", Chris Grabenstein, will meet with our 3-5 grade students.  Each 4th and 5th grader has received his or her own copy of the book and are reading it in preparation for his visit.  There is also a very unique event coming in November via Powell's. Details are being ironed out, but let's just say that animal lovers and fans of the "Unlikely Friendship" books will be in for a real treat.
