Children's author, David LaRochelle, from White Bear Lake, MN, visited Scandia Elementary on November 26. He is the author of 30 children's books including, "The Best Pet Ever", "The Haunted Hamburger", "A Christmas Guest", and his latest release, "Moo!" Mr. LaRochelle is a winner in the Minnesota Book Awards competition and he has a book in the Northern Lights Minnesota Children's Book Award program. Mr LaRochelle gave five presentations throughout the day to our students where he shared his talents and gave the students insight into the world of being an author. Our students were mesmerized by his presentation! Thank you to our media specialist, Mrs. Lynn Furnstahl, for arranging Mr. LaRochelle's visit and to our PTO for funding the event!
