Bonnie Doerr - Author Visit!

Fifth grade had the opportunity to hear Bonnie Doerr  on Wednesday. A special thanks to Jamie Southern at Bookmarks for helping make Mrs. Doerr's visit a reality! Their Authors in Schools & Community program gets authors into places where they can interact with children up close.

Mrs. Doerr has two published books with a third one in the works. In the first book, Island Sting, Kenzie finds herself in the Florida Keys trying to save endangered Key deer.

In book 2, Stake Out, Kenzie rescues sea turtles.

Mrs. Doerr is an engaging speaker and the students had a great time learning about Key deer and sea turtles. Mrs. Doerr introduced them to these endangered species through pictures, interesting anecdotes, and of course, parts of her books!

We represented Moore ES at the Awards Ceremony on November 19th at the Education Building. Thanks to all the students who participated in this year's contest! I know picking winners was a very difficult job!
