Award Winning Author Works with DCSD Students
Students at Mammoth Heights Elementary School in Parker had the unique opportunity to learn from award-winning children’s author, Jerry Pallotta, who recently cleared his schedule to spend the day at the school.
Students worked through various parts of the book writing process with the famous author, talking about stories, characters and plot lines.
Jerry Pallotta is the first author to ever visit Mammoth Heights Elementary. In honor of the special day, every single classroom decorated its doors to honor one of Jerry’s book covers.
“Our Mammoth Height students have embraced the day. Our different groups got the chance to work with Jerry on several different book ideas. He did a great job getting them to see and understand where he came up with various different ideas for his stories right from his own life. We really hope that this inspires our students and their love of reading and writing,” says Mammoth Heights Assistant Principal, Kiersten Hall.
