Mrs. Tabatt's class was invited to an extra library session last week for a live Zoom book reading by Carl Hiaasen, the author of Wrecker. He read an excerpt from the book and then hosted a short Q&A. Students wrote down a ton of questions for Mr. Hiaasen, and he was great at answering as many as he could! Thanks, Carl for helping to build a passion for reading and writing with our students!
