Redmond, WA — Frost was on the ground when I arrived at Rosa Parks Elementary School this morning. But the welcome inside was very warm. Here is my host, Sue Myers, the warm and wonderful librarian of this beautiful place:Have you ever seen a more beautiful school library?
And here’s the hallway leading to it (the library is behind the windows on the left):First, I had a yummy breakfast with the Read-a-Thon winners. One of winners told me she read 1,072 hours! Wow! My eyes wouldn’t be open, nor would I make it to breakfast if I’d read that many hours. Thank you for being such good readers! And thank you, PTO Moms, for feeding me!
Then I had to get to work: And showed them how to put together a SIK (Shakespearean Insulting Kit):Thanks, Mr. Anderson, for being the perfect greasy, onion-eyed, clay-brained crumb cake! I hope your students tell you that you’re a cheerful, generous-hearted, open-minded, warped-humored, good sport!
It was a super-duper busy, exciting day! I had such a fantastic time, I could hardly eat! And most of my lunch was still waiting for me at the end of the day:Thank you, Rosa Parks Elementary, for all your warm hugs and wonderful hospitality! I really enjoyed meeting everyone and being in your school that is SO beautiful and friendly, I didn’t want to leave, I just wanted to do Author Day all over again 🙂 !!!
And good luck to Tanvee who is doing her “famous woman” report on me 🙂 — she’s going to “become” me when she presents it. Please send a video if you can!
Could I “become” a student here and stay forever, please???
I promise I won’t park here:
We loved our Author Day here at Rosa Parks. All the staff and students thought you were wonderful. Thanks for your lessons and books. Alvin Ho is a favorite!
Sue Myers, Librarian
You did a great job. Big week for my students! Tomorrow we are learning about and creating Chinese Calligraphy. Jim Anderson
