Jack Gantos is coming to town!!! At least that was the message delivered by three of our students at Churchill Junior High School. Miguel Ceja, Jenilee Smith, and Raja Mims all presented their own public service announcements to promote the coming visit of the author. The picture was taken at WGIL radio and includes Ms. Teresa Powell as well as radio host Terry Cavanaugh. Ms. Cavanaugh guided our students through the creation of a public service announcement.
Churchill students have been reading Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos. Mr. Gantos will be visiting students at Churchill on Monday, April 18th. Later that night he will present at a free event, open to the public at the Orpheum Theater. The event starts at 7:00 pm.
