Author, Allen St. Jean visits Todd Lane
Author Visits Todd Lane
Through December 5th - 8th, students and staff at Todd Lane Elementary became authors!
Professional author, Alan St. Jean, worked personally with each of our classrooms to develop a story and create drawings using structured writing and illustrative techniques. Alan St. Jean played the role of the editor as our Todd Lane students became the authors for their very own stories. 
Our students were guided through the creation process and suggested various ideas for conflict, plot, character development, etc.  Mr. St. Jean challenged our students to think harder and pushed them to their very best ideas!
Our school created stories that ranged in a variety of genres - adventure, horror, romance and mystery - just to name a few!  Additionally, Mr. St. Jean hosted a free, family night event on December 6th, where he signed books, and gave a presentation on what eventually inspired him to become an author.
On Alan St. Jean's final day, Todd Lane held the highly anticipated Writing Olympics finale where all students and staff were able to attend and listen to their amazing stories. Our Superintendent, Mr. Perry, CVSD School Board member, Joe O'Neill, and President of the CVEF, Chrissy Walmsley, gave excellent commentary for each story they heard and ultimately had the difficult task of selecting their top 3 favorite stories... Every story was simply amazing, and a meaningful learning experience was had by all!
