Pam Flowers came to school today and was kept busy with four presentations: K-2, 3-6, a special writing session, and literacy night. The K-6 programs were about her arctic expedition. The evening session was about her Appalachian Trail hike with her dog Ellie. A writing and drawing contest was held at school on the topic Dream Big! Pam’s motto is “You’re never to young to have a dream and never too old to make them come true.” This was the inspiration for the contest. Winners and honorable mentions were chosen from grades 3-8 and their writings and drawings were made into an anthology book. The winners got to attend a 45 minute writing session where Pam talked about her book “Big Enough Anna: The Little Sled Dog Who Braved the Arctic” and about the publishing process. All students that got their work into the anthology were recognized at literacy night and received a copy of the anthology.
All of the students enjoyed hearing about Pam’s adventures and seeing Ellie in person.
Thank you Pam!
