Another book note: Young Authors’ Day @ Arbor Heights

(Photo by Mark Ahlness)
A big day at Arbor Heights Elementary School – the annual Young Authors’ Day. The celebration of writing and books includes projects by students, and the Book-It Assembly during which the photo above was taken (each year has a special commemorative T-shirt – red last year, teal this year). And tonight, according to the AH Facebook page, it culminated with a library dedication in memory of Lynn Barnicle, the beloved teacher lost to leukemia at age 50 last year (here’s a WSB report about a memorial last summer).

    Lynn Barnicle was a fantastic teacher and one that shaped me as a student and a person. She valued characteristics that I now strive to embody. There is no better way to celebrate her life than to dedicate a library in memory of her.

    We love you and miss you always

    Lynn was amazing. She was fun and creative. I wished she could have stayed longer.
