Children's book author Michelle Markel visited the elementary school and presented a writing workshop for third, fourth and fifth grade students.
Students learned about the stories that inspired Markel to become a writer.
She shared the writing process with students and as a group they worked together to create a short paragraph.
Markel is the author of many books including Brave Girl and The Fantastic Jungles of Henri Rousseau.
Students in Mrs. Burrell and Mrs. Schepis' classes created a thank you card and presented it to the author.
