October ended on a fun note with a visit from award winning author & illustrator, Bethanie Murguia. Ms. Murgia engaged kindergarten, first and second grades with her drawings and a slide presentation sharing stories she had written when she was younger as well as sightings of unicorns! After reading her latest book, Do You Believe in Unicorns?, she answered questions about her writing and signed numerous books for the students.

The NDV 7th grade religion class this trimester studied the Mass more in depth and demonstrated their knowledge making booklets for younger students, designing posters of the four main parts, and creating slide show presentations. They began Halloween Day with their first grade buddies reading stories they had written in Language Arts. With the help of their buddies, they illustrated the storybooks.
