We are excited to announce that professional cartoonist and author Steve Barr will be visiting Marlow on Friday, September 8th! He will be teaching our students how to create their own cartoon characters, and talking about the positive role school played in his own life.
As part of his visit, Mr. Barr will be offering students a chance to preorder signed copies of some of his books for $8.00 each. Proceeds from these sales will go to “Drawn to Help,” an organization that Mr. Barr founded. They take free cartooning lessons and art supplies to children in hospitals, so it’s going to a good cause.
Order forms will be going home with students this week. If you’d like to order one of the books, please fill out the order form and return it, along with your payment, to Ms. Waxman in the Media Center before Wednesday, September 6th. Payment can be made in cash or check.
We are looking forward to having Mr. Barr visit our school and teach our students!
