Today is the first day of the Hugh Cole Writer-in-residence program! This BWEF funded initiative brings writer, teacher, counselor Julia Cook to the school for one week to work with students and faculty. She will lead entertaining discussions on the use of storybooks to offer children and adults a fun way to learn important people skills. Topics will include tattling, bullying, personal space, video game addiction, digital citizenship, interrupting, divorce, anger, responsibility and personal safety. The goal of Mrs. Cook’s books and efforts is to actively involve young people into her fun and creative stories to teach them to become life-long problem solvers. We can't wait to hear more about this incredible project that will touch every single member of the Hugh Cole Elementary School community!
