Mr. Schu Visits Churchill!

Churchill elementary was recently treated to a very special visitor!  A trail of hearts and books welcomed John Schumacher, AKA Mr. Schu, to the school.  Students and staff  wrote on hearts and books about a book they love, or why they love reading.  Mr. Schu is the Ambassador of School Libraries for Scholastic, and he travels the country promoting the importance of school libraries.  He shared his boundless enthusiasm for books and reading with both students and staff.  He invited teachers and staff members to attend a 30 minute book talk in the morning before school.  He then spoke to 2nd and 3rd graders about some of his favorite books, and sang the Narwhal song with them.  He donated 22 books to our school library, and gave several books to kids and teachers.  In addition, he was able to be a part of our One Book, One School reveal!  Thanks to a generous donation from Weichert Realtors, Your Place Realty, every student and staff member at Churchill will receive a copy of The One and Only Ivan for our One Book, One School event that will begin in January.  Thank you Mr. Schu for an amazing morning!
