Each student at Hillcrest School in Estevan is now a published author.
Thanks to the Student Treasures program from Topeka, Kansas, each student, depending on their grade, is creating either their own book or contributing to a classroom book. Students did their own artwork and now have a finished product to take home and share with others.
"It isn’t always easy to get students to write and this book publishing program was a great motivation," said Sara Pippus, Hillcrest's school community coordinator. "All the students got on board and wrote about things that are important to them. Students go home proud of their work, with a hard cover book with pictures and writing they created."
Hillcrest School intends to use the program again in the fall and encourage their young authors to share their works with the community through a literacy evening.
