We Had a Winner!

We are so fortunate to have welcomed Jeopardy! champion and author, Ken Jennings, to the Lower School Library thanks to Powell's Books. He shared secrets about being a contestant on Jeopardy!
The main message was the idea that "everything is interesting!" He let students know that curiosity is an awesome thing and anything can be interesting if you are curious about it. 4th and 5th graders have spent the week researching biographical facts about him during our library classes.
