Writer and Illustrator Visit Townline and School of Dual Language

Second-grade students at Townline and the School of Dual Language got a special treat on Nov. 5. Writer Elliot Kalan and illustrator Tim Miller gave a presentation on writing and illustrating books. Mr. Kalan spoke about what stories inspired him as a child, and how those stories inspired him to write his own stories.  Mr. Miller also spoke about his love for comic books as a child, and how that love inspired him to draw. The two of them collaborated on the book, “Horse Meets Dog,” which they read to the group.  They also worked with the second-graders to create a short story, which was illustrated by Mr. Miller.

Kindy Gets a Visitor

Our kindergarten students enjoyed a visit from Mike Caplan, a meteorologist with Fox News Chicago.  They learned about extreme weather and how to keep themselves safe.

There’s a chill in the air and there are pumpkins in the patch! We are looking forward to the Halloween festivities at Townline Elementary School on October 31st. Following lunch/recess, students will dress in costume for a school-wide Halloween parade. After the parade, students will return to homerooms for their PTO sponsored room parties for the remainder of the afternoon.
