Foxy's Tale - Altoona Elementary Schools


I visited two elementary schools in Altoona, Pennsylvania. At McAuliffe Heights at Irving Elementary I met with the whole school for a presentation in the auditorium.  Prior to me visiting the school,  the students drew pictures representing the eight chapters in Foxy's Tale. The pictures were judged and the winners had an Alaskan snack with me after the presentation in the library.

We had a good time talking about the book, Alaska, sled dog racing, and even a little about when I was in elementary school. Here is a picture of me and the students who read the book to the other students over the school's loud speaker system.

When I was leaving McAuliffe Heights at Irving Elementary, I stopped to have my picture taken with an igloo they built out of one gallon plastic milk bottles. It looked great.

After lunch, I met with some gifted students at Juniaita Gap Elementary school. They were a fun bunch of kids and they all received a "piece of raw liver" as a treat. You had to be there to understand about the raw liver.

It was a fun day in the Altoona area, can't wait to go back again next year.
