  • Skype visit with author, Rachel Vail

    Posted by Susanne Fuller on 5/2/2018

    Rachel Vail Skype visit

    Ms. Moore's 7A students enjoy a fun and informative visit with author Rachel Vail. She's written a number of titles we have in our library. Be sure to check them out. Unfriended and Well, That Was Awkward are recent titles that have been circulating with SMS students. Not only did she offer tips to help us develop as writers, but she also shared tips to help us develop our spying techniques. Shhh, don't tell.

    Vacation reads

    I should be prepared for any flight delays! My Kindle is also loaded and ready to go. May your break be filled with books and fun. With the exception of the two books on top, the others have been published in 2017 and have made many "best of" lists.
