EDISON, NJ -- Friends and families joined the first grade students in the classes of Mrs. Jennifer Molloy and Mrs. Bethany Howell on Friday, January 10, at the Just Write Café in Lower Snowdon.

First graders published their very own personal narratives and shared them with their families. The students explained how they went through the stages of the writing process to complete their books. They also created book trailers to review the books produced by their classmates.
