Author Visits East Arcadia

Deborah Cousar-Saunders, author of the "Putt Girl" book series, visited East Arcadia School on Friday, February 19. Ms. Cousar-Saunders did a shared reading of "Putt Girl: Best Day Yet" with the classes, and the students got a chance to try out the portable putting green that the author brought with her. We are honored that Ms. Cousar-Saunders spent the time with us on Friday ... and the students certainly enjoyed getting to learn about Paige, the main character in the story. The students were encouraged to think outside the box and try something new. Thank you, Ms. Cousar-Saunders!
