Virtual Author Read-Along Assembly

On April 20th the PTSA will be providing a virtual author read-along assembly during the school day with Heidi Mottin.

Her book “Rescuing Reed: The Little Dog Who Could”, is about her dog's journey from homeless dog to "a dog with a purpose."

Reed's story has many applications for today's grade school students, such as banishing stigmas, not judging others, anti-bullying and giving everyone a chance to be their best self.
