Save the date - Writers' Festival!

Jacksonville Elementary School’s third annual Writers' Festival is on Thursday, May 2.
Author and illustrator, Kurt Cyrus (Tadpole Rex and The Voyage of Turtle Rex), is the event’s keynote speaker. During the festival, your child will be sharing his/her work with a writing mentor. Over 20 authors and writers will be here to encourage our young writers in small group settings. It will be a night to celebrate the amazing progress your child has made in writing this year.
Please plan to come to the school gymnasium on the evening of Thursday, May 2. Book signing will begin at 6:00 p.m. The keynote speech, followed by breakout sessions, will begin at 6:30 p.m. Permission slips will go home at the end of this week. Please return the slip as soon as possible so that your child can be placed in a small group. We are hoping for a great turnout!
