A big welcome from Oceanway Middle School!

Oceanway Middle School sure knows how to greet an author!

This is the “hello” I got when I arrived at Oceanway Middle School. At one of my sessions a girl asked, “Did you like the sign over the door? My sister painted it!”

To keep the sessions small reading specialist Brenda Albury and I decided we’d go with fifteen sessions over the two day visit. I talked myself silly, but the students were so focused and polite it was a treat to be there.

Here’s the great backdrop in the Media Center.

Cass and Jemmie were definitely here–they left their footprints behind.

Headed for Oceanway Middle School!

I know school is about to end for the year–I bet you all have big plans–I sure do.

But before the janitor locks the doors and the teachers put on their flip-flops and throw away their red pencils I am going to do one last school visit in Jacksonville, Florida at Oceanway Middle School.

Brenda Albury, the Reading Specialist has given me a big heads up–I will be greeted by MASSIVELY AMAZING PROJECTS based on my books.

How about if I take some pictures and post them when I get back? After all, MASSIVELY AMAZING PROJECTS don’t happen every day.

Okay, I’ll do it.

Stand by.
