to the Arbor Heights School
Young Authors' Conference 2000!
On May 25, 2000, we held our annual Young Authors' Conference. Every student (K-5) published a book. On this special day each student had a chance to share his or her book with other students, parents, and teachers. This event was organized by our librarian, Mrs. Dene Napolitan. Our special guest this year was children's book author Jasper Tomkins!

In the afternoon all Arbor Heights students shared their books in small groups with children from other classrooms and grades. Then there was an all-school recess and autographing party! Thanks to our PTSA for our beautiful T-shirts! Everybody was busy signing each other's shirts:
Books we just had to share....
There was also a tasty Ice Cream Social in the evening.
What a wonderful day!
