March 7, 2016 - Mrs. Angela Gillis’s fourth grade students at Excelsior wrote, illustrated and published their own book. The students included original stories and acrostic poems in the book. They learned what it takes to put a book together. They worked as a team to complete the project. The students helped each other by sharing ideas and lending a hand with illustrations. The students were able to purchase a copy of the book for themselves and donated a copy to the Excelsior library.
