Author in Residence - Lois Szymanski

December 5, 2002

Special thanks to Carla Hurchalla and Betty Ryall who organized the "Authors in Residence" program at Delmar Elementary four years ago. Mrs. Blackwell's fourth grade language arts computer students are participating in the program in Mrs. Weeg's lab for the 2002-2003 school year with Lois Szymanski. We are proud and excited to be working again this year with Lois Szymanski who has authored many books for children. Our program was a big success during the first three years and meant a great deal to all involved. Mrs. Szymanski came to Delmar in June of 2000, June of 2001 and June 2002 and met the students who worked with her online from November through March. They are pictured with her in the top photo on this page.

Bruce transferred to another school. We miss him!

Lois visited Delmar again this June and spoke to the students in two assemblies. Her slides were about writing and her newest books in the "Gettysburg Ghost Gang" series. The children were thrilled to meet their mentoring author in person!
