Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd graders are in for a treat on September 27. They will spend some time with author Sherry Cerino as she reads her book, “Ella & the All-Stars”, to promote kindness, friendship, and acceptance of differences!
Families have a special opportunity to purchase their very own author-signed copy of “Ella & the All-Stars”. $3 for each book purchased will be donated back to the NES PTA.
