On Wednesday Feb 23, the PTO is bringing a local Connecticut author Shaylyn Young to visit PGS as our fist IN-PERSON author visit since the pandemic. Shaylyn will be visiting with the kindergarten and first grade classes to read her book "Sadie and Jace: Make a Friend, Be a Friend."
This beautifully illustrated book teaches conversational skills, specifically addressing different social-emotional and communication concepts such as asking questions, understanding thoughts, thinking of others' feelings, and encouraging diversity. Shaylyn Young is a counselor and a behavior analyst for children with autism and related disabilities. We hope our students will enjoy Shaylyn's visit and we are thrilled to have her connect with our youngest of listeners.
The visit is part of our PGS PTO enrichment program to enhance the PGS reading curriculum and at the same time to support local authors! The PTO graciously gifted each of our Kindergarten and First Grade teachers a copy of Shaylyn's book for their classroom library.
Mystic Aquarium is visiting PGS as part of an Enrichment Program that PGS PTO supports with the help of our awesome community!
