Antheil Celebrates Their Annual Literary Festival! 

 
Cat in Hat Reads  
On Wednesday, March 8th Antheil Elementary School brought the whole community together to celebrate their annual Literacy Festival.  To start the Literacy Festival off with an exciting bang, the very talented and local author, Lisa Funari Willever dropped by to do an author reading to the whole school. She explained that she’s been writing ever since she was in the third grade and would write stories every day, even on the weekends! She loves what she does and considers herself to be a “full-time mom, and a night-time author who travels all over the world visiting schools.” The students were mesmerized by her story telling abilities and exhilarating novels!

Later that evening, students and parents were brought together to explore and participate in many literacy activities set up around the school.  Some of these activities included the 10th annual “Living Museum” presented by our first grade students, the Ewing Police and Fire Safety outreach program, a Literacy tech center to create your own storyboard on the computer, as well as story time told by our guest of honor, The Cat in the Hat. The evening brought everyone in the community together to discover fun and exciting ways to incorporate literacy into our everyday lives.
