On Wednesday, November 14, twenty two kindergarteners and first graders from Key Biscayne Elementary visited NWSA’s High School creative writing class where the youngsters, dressed in their sleepy-time best “PJ’s”  mingled, sang, played and even read with their high school mentors. The thirty creative writing high school students eagerly read their end –of-first-semester project, illustrated children’s books, to the mesmerized youngsters while a quartet from the music division entertained the group with merry holiday tunes. “Authoring and illustrating a children's book is a large project.  It would be a shame to only assign such work a grade; therefore, sharing the book with the community offers the students an opportunity to reach out to younger children” declared Graham.

Principal Frederic Conde, along with other NWSA faculty and staff lent a helping hand even took their place alongside the young and older students.
