Updates from Hillcrest PTA on Facebook

The Ivy Bookshop and Hillcrest Elementary are proud to present to our students, the graphic artist and author Nathan Hale (yes, that is his real name). Mr. Hale will be coming to Hillcrest on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 to do two presentations for students and sign books. I apologize for the late notice, but this opportunity was just given to our school. According to Mr. Hale’s website some students will “get to see a live performance of the Top-Secret Hazardous Tales story. This is drawn live. He will draw over twenty pages of silly cartoons while telling a true story about Lewis and Clark.” Grades K-2 students will see a brief talk on becoming an author/illustrator, and a silly monster drawing game.” Students can pre-order book from the Ivy Bookshop by sending the form, along with payment (made out to Ivy Bookshop) by Friday morning. He will also sign books that day if you prefer to order them yourself.
Thank you for your support,
Mrs. Schoen
