Quail Summit Hosts Young Author’s Day


DIAMOND BAR, CA--Quail Summit Elementary students were ready to read during Young Author’s Day on May 18.

For the event held throughout the campus, each brought their best writing to share with students from kindergarten through fifth grades.

About eight young writers were assigned to each cross-age group headed up by a parent, volunteer or teacher. Then, in read-around style, children politely listened as schoolmates read their original stories aloud and showed the illustrations.

After each story, students were encouraged to offer positive feedback to the young authors. 

"Our Young Author’s Day is one of the best days of the school year,” said Principal Dr. Alysia Hobbs.  

“We celebrate our students’ successes with the opportunity to show off students’ writing skills. Children share their writing with one another, from creative short stories to stories about themselves. It is a great way for all children to participate in a literacy event that values their hard work. Volunteers come out from across the community to listen to our children read their stories aloud. It is a great day for everyone!" she added.
