Author, Liesl Shurtliff came to our school December 9th ! She presented to third, fourth , and sixth grades. 
 She is the wonderful author of Rump, Jack and Red, a story twist on the famous fairy tales. She talked about her life, her books as well as the writing process. Students wrote stories of their own using her writing process. In addition, she also had a few LaSalle II students participate in a small play. We are so grateful to the PTO and administration for having such a wonderful author come to our school.
