• Meet the Authors


     Through the years, our schools have had the privilege of hosting many wonderful authors and illustrators. The children of McDonald School have been inspired through this program to read, write and explore art. Heartfelt thanks go to the Centennial Education Foundation, as well as our Home & School Association for supporting these programs.
