Say hello to our TA Prep published authors. Mrs. Nixon and our middle school students worked diligently to complete their winter deadline and the fruit of their labor arrived last week. Each student wrote a short story and provided the cover art, which was compiled into a book for their class. We are extremely proud of them and what they have accomplished. They have set the bar for future classes.
