Castleton Elementary School welcomed author/illustrator Daniel Miyares on May 9 with a day-long celebration that involved every grade.


Mr. Miyares began the day with breakfast with 5th grade Reading Ambassadors. He then held four assemblies, visited classrooms, and enjoyed lunch with 4th grade Dewey Duty Helpers.


In the evening, CES held a Picture a Poem Gala where more than 200 students, family members, and community members welcomed Mr. Miyares.


"Mrs. Pryde's class created displays based on five of Daniel's books. Mrs. Kosinski's class created an 'Inspiration Chair' and Mrs. Golden's class wrote a timeline of Daniel's life," explained Library Media Specialist Stacey Rattner. "Mrs. DeMassio's fourth graders helped with the ambiance of the evening by creating a hashtag wall and other decorations."
