Upcoming Author Visit

Do you love graphic novels or comics? Graphic novelist, Nathan Hale, is coming to Canyon Ridge on Oct. 1st! He is an author and illustrator of historical graphic novels. He will be presenting for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders.

We are having a contest for students to help welcome him and to win an opportunity for lunch with the author. Students are challenged to create a one-page comic strip about any event in history. That's it! You can draw by hand or use technology to create your comic.  All entries are due Sept. 29.

Have fun making your own comics & if you make something worth sharing, send it to me at

Happy Creating!

Comic Maker - available in the itunes store
