Collier ES shows off student work on Author’s Day

Collier Elementary School welcomed families and students to celebrate its first annual Author’s Day on June 4.

Students and teachers from every grade level beautifully decorated their hallways with creative writing projects inspired by their favorite authors.

Parents first entered Seussville, where they saw Pre-K students showcase their best work based on their favorite Dr. Seuss characters.

Then, they made their way around the school to admire all the writing projects on all the other featured authors, including Eric Carle (kindergarten), Kevin Henkes (first grade) and Junie B. Jones (second grade).

Third-graders took it to next level by dressing up in spooky costumes to portray some of the characters from R.L. Stine’s horror book series, “Goosebumps.”

For Collier Elementary Principal Patricia Garcia, it was important to celebrate Author’s Day to teach students about the different authors they have been reading throughout the school year.

“We wanted to push for them to learn about the different authors and their books as part of our reading and writing initiative this year,” she said. “It’s also just another fun way to get the kids excited about reading and writing.”

Way to go, Eagles!
