In partnership with Scholastic® Book Fairs, the Spark Foundation hosted its first virtual meet and greet with Sandra Markle, author of What If You Had T. Rex Teeth? And Other Dinosaurs Parts. Every second-grade student at River Woods Elementary had the opportunity to participate in a hour conference with Mrs. Markle, and they also each received an autographed copy of her book to add to their personal home libraries! Today was a resounding success! Thank you to everyone who participated in the Spark Foundation’s first step in connecting our students with the authors of their new favorite books. With your help, this amazing experience can be just the first of many for our students in the Des Moines community.
