Have you ever wanted to be an author and wondered what it takes to write a best seller? Lisa McMann was able to share some thoughts about her life as an author, her work ethic, and what influenced her to become a writer in a recent phone interview. Then in March, she was in town for the Tucson Festival of Books. She came to meet with fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-grade classes at my school.

Your child will enjoy being with curious, creative and motivated students while learning language and culture. Language immersion programs in Spanish, French, German and Chinese. Enrichment programs in science, art and sports will engage your children and foster their development. Camp hours: 8:30-a.m.-3:30 p.m. Extended care available 7 a.m–6 p.m. Cost: $50 registration fee; $250/week, full-time; $170/week, $65/day.
