Welcome Back! This week, the High Park Day School community celebrated our Third Annual Book Week! It has been a week filled with the celebration of stories, graphic novels, comic books and the written word in general!
On Wednesday, we had two different visitors! First, Ms.Ashley Bondoc, a former CYW student here at HPDS, joined the Junior Class to share and read one of her favourite books: Junie B.Jones! Later in the Day, Ann Tudor, an essayist and author of Tales from My Table, shared her experience as a writer and talked about her next project, a cookbook with no recipes!
On Friday, our third Book Week Guest, Mr.Greg Beer, was interviewed by the Senior Students about his career as a Television Writer. Greg currently writes for a variety of shows, including MAYDAY! Since the students have begun working on their own graphic novels, it was an excellent opportunity to learn first-hand about how words become images!
A HUGE THANK YOU to all of our guests, and those who helped organize their visits!!
Friday was also Dress as Your Favourite Character Day! See if you can name the characters:
Have a great weekend everyone!
