What is Super Saturday?

selection of topics. Past programs have included robotics, animation, theatre, Chinese language, reptiles, creative writing, LEGO machines, the
cardiovascular system, and electricity, to name but a few. There is something for everyone. A parent presentation is also offered.

Last Friday the 6th grade Discover students to their annual trip to Shank’s Mare to celebrate both the end of the elementary years and the excitement of going to middle school in the fall. It was lovely to meet our new Manor families and give an overview of Manor Middle and how gifted support works in the middle school. As I said Friday, please email or call me with any questions you may have.
We started our day with a morning kayaking trip. The water was calm, and the scenery was gorgeous. It was fun to see so many kids who hadn’t had the opportunity to kayak before really enjoy the experience.
The trip was got very exciting for the Manor group as we were within 20 feet or so of a Bald Eagle eating his breakfast on our way back to the launch site. I had my iPhone and snapped some shots. They aren’t top quality because of the zoom, but I still got some and a video.
…and he’s off with his fish breakfast – he did not leave that behind

After lunch, we were able to participate in the stream study in Fishing Creek. The kids didn’t care that it was cold (and some parents even jumped right in.). The seine nets were a big help in trapping the macroinvertebrates.
Looking for any larvae, bugs, or crayfish that could be found.
Colin had proof that the stream was healthy.
Nigel checking out what was found.
What a fantastic group of kids. So super excited to have this bunch next year!

As well as numerous workshops for your readers and writers.
About the Festival
Our festival’s mission is to bring together kids, parents, teachers and authors to celebrate the beauty of the written (and illustrated word) for the younger readers (and those of us that don’t want to stop reading good that remind us of our youth). Aaron’s Books is located in the heart of Central Pennsylvania. We are family owned and operated since opening in 2005. The store is named after Aaron, who is 12 years old.
Now in its 6th year- here are some pictures from previous festivals, featuring Sharon Robinson, Nick Bruel, Brian Biggs, Daniel Kirk, Tom Angleberger, Matt Phelan, Eric Wight, Josh Berk, Mitali Perkins and lots of other great writers for kids of all ages!

This was sent my way. I’ve never been, but I thought I would share. There is a website and an email address to get further information. Let me know if you take advantage of the club; I’d love to get someone’s feedback.
just in case you missed Dr. Egan doing his duty as a Hambright leader…
