It's not everyday that you get to hear from a New York Times best selling author, but that's just what happened at Cary Junior High! The Testing Trilogy author Joelle Charbonneau delivered a great talk about perseverance and passing the test you don't take at school!
In addition to student assemblies, 200 lucky students at CJH were randomly selected and won an autographed copy of one of Ms. Charbonneau's books!
This event is part of the 2016 Sylvester Symposium of Writing. The symposium is the National Day on Writing event that takes place across District 26 schools. It is named in honor of the late Pat Sylvester, a Cary Junior High Language Arts teacher who championed D26 activities for the National Day on Writing before her passing.
The Cary 26 Education Foundation is proud to sponsor this event!
The Cary 26 Education Foundation supports programs that expand the educational experience of students in Cary elementary and junior high schools. This includes enrichment opportunities like educational trips and competitions, and programs that are proposed by educators via our grant program.
