Our special guest is coming Monday, February 1st!!

Monday, February 1st is an exciting day at Central School as we welcome our 2015-2016 guest author, Michael Dooling! We have been busy planning and preparing for this exciting Author Visit for many months. Michael Dooling wrote and illustrated his first book many years ago and has not looked back since! Mr. Dooling grew up in Marlton and currently resides in Audubon, NJ. He has been an author for many years and has written and illustrated over 50 children’s books throughout his career. His newest book, Fossil Hunter is based on Haddonfield's beloved Hadrosaurus and this amazing discovery!!!

Michael is always putting on a costume and posing for a character in a book. One day, he is posing in costume as an O. Henry character and the next he is pretending to be a fossil hunter. Michael has modeled as a pirate, pilgrim, patriot, inventor, explorer, and sometimes, even a bit of a rogue. Each book is a new adventure that he dives into head first while bringing his readers along with him!

Throughout the next two weeks, our Central School students will be studying Michael Dooling's works, reading his stories, examining his non-fiction content, and researching about his life!!

We have been very busy in the library and are very excited about his visit in early February to our school. Our students and entire staff would like to thank the Central School PTA for sponsoring such a special day for us! A special thank you to Mrs. Kathy Morris for all of her help in arranging this visit!

If you are interested in purchasing one of his books, please complete the attached form and hand it in by Thursday, January 21st. An order form was also sent home with students this past week.

Thank you, as always, for your support for Central School and all of our wonderful learning opportunities!
