Storybook heroine Maggie Steele is ready and eager to inspire and encourage the awesome 5th grade students at Griffith Elementary School in Wichita, Kan.
Author Grant Overstake will visit the school on Tuesday, Oct. 1st, to discuss Maggie’s courageous journey in his novel, Maggie Vaults Over the Moon.
“Maggie is super excited to share her story with all three 5th grade classes at Griffith!” Overstake said. “Griffith is a wonderful school with great students.”
Maggie Vaults Over the Moon has been endorsed by Olympians, school counselors, and teachers across the nation for its inspirational message for young people, including Griffith’s Jenni Birdsall — who’s reading the story to her 5th graders in advance of the author’s arrival.
“This is an over the moon opportunity for the fifth students at Griffith!” Birdsall said. “We are currently working in reading a theme of ‘Overcoming Challenges’, and students are learning about overcoming their fears, tough situations, and becoming a better person by overcoming the obstacles.”
“Fifth grade is a challenging year for students,” she added, “And Maggie is encouraging us with her experiences.”
