An Awesome Author Visit!

We were so lucky to have Paul B. Janeczko visit our school. The students were thrilled to hear about his life as a writer.  They even got to write some of their very own poems. Thank you to Georgetown Central School PTF and the Georgetown Working League for making this visit possible.
