This Masters Student Has A Lot Of Heart

Adrian Vasquez is in Pre-K at Masters Elementary and his inspirational story was highlighted in the Jump Rope for Heart presentations at the Masters campus this week. Adrian was born with a congenital heart defect that required open heart surgery when he was just two months old. When he was four years old he had to have another heart surgery and will continue to undergo treatment for his condition. He is one tough little guy and even though he's gone through all of this it hasn't dampened his Spirit and he is a happy, energetic, Pre-k student. The American Heart Association uses Adrian's story to educate students about heart health and encourage them to raise money by jumping rope.

Author Mentors Young Writers At Copperfield

Getting instruction from subject experts is such a powerful tool and Copperfield Elementary School recently hosted a published author visit who brought writing to life.  Children's book author Emma J. Virjan talked to the 1st, 3rd, and 4th grades at Copperfield about the joy of writing.  Austin based author Ms. Virjan is the creator of the Pig In A Wig book series and came in her wig and her pig nose to talk about her main book character and how she came up with the idea. She even looked over a number of writing samples from the kids before she talked to them so she could give them some pointers about how to write better and where to get story ideas.  But above all,  she came to engage kids to see that reading and writing is fun...especially when you can make up silly stories and illustrate them.
