Have you every thought about being a writer? Well, Melinda Long began her writing career on a rainy day when she was six. Her mother, tired of hearing how bored Melinda was, told her to write a story about Yogi Bear and friends. She even gave Melinda a typewriter to use. It was so much fun, Melinda just kept writing. Now it’s one of her favorite things to do.

If you would like to hear more about Melinda Long’s writing career, be sure to join us at GES on Thursday, January 18 for Literacy Night. Melinda will give a parent presentation from 6:30-7:00 pm, then students will be able to travel to stations that include walk the plank, pirate puppets, and a photo booth. It will be an exciting night.

We hope to see many families on Thursday night!
