Author, Dr. Henry Baber, (His publications include “A Bedtime Rhyme” for children) came to work with 3rd graders at FES for two days. His message to students was “details in art and details in writing.” Dr. Baber worked with students to create memory jars decorated with meaningful trinkets and odds & ends. He encouraged students to add details and color to their writing to make it more meaningful and interesting. The students enjoyed his visit! – Special thanks to Jen Overstreet and Kim Polen for their assistance throughout the day!
Our students were able to spend time with Dr. Baber due to funding in part from Young Audiences (Center for Arts Inspired Learning). Additional grants were also received from The Nord Foundation and The Firelands Endowment Fund.
