Chris Barton Author Visit

Coming Soon!

On Thursday, May 10th, author Chris Barton will host assemblies at NMES for all PreK-2nd grade students! In April, students will learn about and study his books, such as 88 Instruments, Whoosh!, Book or Bell?, and Shark vs. Train, and more, in their media center lessons. Then, on May 10th, they will hear him speak about the writing process and get to ask him questions about his books!

This event was made possible through the generosity of a friend of NMES, Mrs. Erin Hayden. She is sponsoring his trip to our school!
