Prairie Point hosted a day long visit with author Kate Messner on December 5, 2016. Students in grades K-5 enjoyed presentations with Kate. She shared stories of where her ideas come from, her research adventures, and how she keeps a writer's notebook. Students were surprised by an autographed writer's notebook of their own when they returned to their classrooms after the presentations. Kate was impressed with our students' thoughtfulness and attention during her presentations. Thank you, Kate Messner, for inspiring a school full of readers and writers.
