Author Visit- Purchase Your Autographed Books

It's finally here! Marci Peschke will be "visiting" us on Tuesday, February 23rd virtually. Among other things, Marci wrote the very popular Kylie Jean book series.

Author visits are usually done in person, but this year because of Covid-19 restrictions and to accommodate our at-home learners we will be doing it via zoom. As always, students will be able to get books autographed however, only new books purchased through the PTA will be signed. This is a covid-19 protocol to avoid any extra contacts. 

The books are now available for sale here
