Students in grades kindergarten thru sixth grade enjoyed listening to best selling author Trudy Ludwig today as she gave 3 different presentations to three groups of students in the Performing Arts Center. Trudy is a children's advocate and award-winning author. She has been featured on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” PBS’s nationally syndicated show, “Keeping Kids Healthy,” Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, Reading Rainbow, the National Crime Prevention Council’s Circle of Respect program, and has served as an expert panel member on Sesame Street Workshop’s video series addressing bullying.
In each of her student assemblies at our school, Trudy read one of her books to the audience and discussed the story and the characters’ roles. Through engaging, age-appropriate activities and role-play with the author, the children learned important life skills related to making healthy friendship choices.
