Second- and third-grade students at St. Jude School, Mountain Top, recently held their annual Authors' Tea to celebrate the receipt of their hardcover, professionally bound books that were published after weeks of hard work. The second-grade book was a collection of each student's original, illustrated, hand-written poems entitled Animal Tales. The cover design was by Gabriella Shideler. The third-grade students each wrote and illustrated their own original fairy tale using language arts, computer and art skills. Refreshments were enjoyed by family and friends at the tea. Some of the participants, from left, are Abebe Worke, Sophia Bere, Hanna Bere, Tayech Kiffle, Rosalie Parsons, William Wolfgang and Cathy Wolfgang.
