Author visits John Wetten Elementary
In September, students at John Wetten Elementary had the opportunity to spend time with children’s advocate and award-winning author Trudy Ludwig. In each of her three student assemblies, Trudy read one of her books to the audience and discussed the story and the characters’ roles.  Through engaging, age-appropriate activities and role-play with the author, the students learned important life skills related to making healthy friendship choices.
