David Sargent Author Visit
The afternoon of April 2, 2014 was an exciting time at Fairview Elementary. Arkansas author, David M. Sargent Jr. came to visit us. He also brought the dogs who are the inspirations for his books - Emma, Tatum, Daphne, and Spike. I snapped as many photos as I could and here are some of the highlights.

Mrs. Guion was very pleased to hold Emma after her part in the presentation.
Mrs. Baxter helped Spike say good-bye to everyone as they left the gym.
Mrs. Kerr and Mrs. Campbell gave Spike some attention as he sat with the fourth grade on the bleachers. After their race to see who would get to hold Spike, Mrs. Baxter was kind enough to let Mrs. Kerr have the first turn.
