The second semester is starting with a bang at Clinton Elementary School with news announced Thursday that well-known children's author Patricia Polacco will be at the school for a pair of presentations in April.
Christina Soberalski says it was a long time coming but she is excited to have Polacco coming to Clinton.
Soberalski indicates Polacco writes from a real-life perspective and targets students in the second through junior high school age.
Getting to see an author who actually wrote a book students like means a lot to students. Soberalski says it can be more meaningful than watching a movie or reading an article about the author.
Polacco will be at Clinton Elementary School April 29. The school is taking up fundraising efforts to pay for Polacco's appearance. Hear more about that next week on Regional Radio News.
