Peter J. Murray Brings His New Book To PS4

The Carmel Hill Fund Education Program (the organization who funds Accelerated Reader in our school) helped author Peter J. Murray launch two new books! His newly released titles include the 5th book in his "Mokee Joe" series - "Mokee Joe: Swamp Warrior" - and the student-collaborated short story book "PS 13."

"PS 13" is extra special for PS4, since chapter seven was written by one of our graduates from Ms. Wilson's class!  Adriana H. wrote a very scary story called "George".  She was the guest of honor at a recent assembly featuring Peter Murray!  She was given gifts and the student audience heard the first page of her scary story.  Last year, the winners of the "'Spooky Story Contest" took a limousine ride to Jekyll & Hyde Club Restaurant in Times Square, where they enjoyed a "spooky" lunch and got to speak with Peter himself.  Click here to see photos of Adriana and her teacher just before that event!

Special thanks to Tommy Parker (Implementation Specialist) and the Carmel Hill Fund Organization for encouraging our students to read.  Click here to see other schools Peter J. Murray has visited.  For the author's official website, click here!  Take a look at the collage below to see photos taken at our school!
