What’s Coming Up – Week of October 22-26, 2018

Hello parents! Wow! These weeks are flying by-AND what an exciting week we’ve had! We had a special visit from Mr. Cooley’s father, Michael Cooley, Sr. who shared some advice on writing! He published a book called, The Power of Forgiveness, and shared about the writing process.  As you know, we’ve been working on writing and finishing up our memoirs and his advice was perfect timing to help give us one last push of motivation to finish our writing to make it the best it can be! Thank you, Mr. Cooley (Sr.), for coming and speaking with us!
