Thirty-eight CVMS students, along with 9 adults enjoyed a day on the campus of the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg. This was the site of the 50th Annual Children's Literature Festival. A day when authors and illustrators from all over the country gather to share their craft with young people. Among the authors we saw this year were- Mary Downing Hahn, Alan Gratz, Mary Casanova, Jack Gantos, Cheryl Harness, and C.B. Cheaney. Students earn this field trip by reading the current Mark Twain and Truman nominees. To quote a CVMS student, "It was awesome!"
Our students with author Alan Gratz. One of our favorites!!!
Regan, Kyler, Daya, Jessica, Henley, Caitlyn, Hailey, and Natalie are excited to be recording and reporting about the goings-on this school year at CVMS. You can watch their reports on our YouTube Channel!
