Welcome to the Arbor Heights School
Young Authors' Conference 2009!

On May 21, 2009, we held our annual Young Authors' Conference. Every student (K-5) published a book. On this special day each student had a chance to share his or her book with other students, parents, teachers, and members of the community. This event was organized by our Young Authors' Day Committee.

In the morning we all got on our beautiful red shirts and enjoyed a "Book It" performance of The Jungle Books!

Shirts ready to go before school...

Waiting for the show to start......

A fantastic performance!

In the afternoon of the 21st, all Arbor Heights students shared their books in small groups with children from other classrooms and grades. After that, there was an all-school recess and autographing party! Thanks to our PTSA for our beautiful red T-shirts! We got real busy signing them right away:

In line with Mr. Wilkie!

Ms. Nall signs....

Mr. Larsen signs...

So many shirts, so little time...

Mrs. Bledsoe returns to sign shirts!

So many shirts, so little time...

...and then we returned to our classrooms for Young Authors celebrations to end the school day:

In the evening, books were on display in the lunchroom, a Book Fair was going on in the Library, and authors had a chance to read their books in the lunchroom. We broadcast parts of the evening live on Ustream.tv. Here are a couple of clips from the event:
