Fourth-graders welcomed Ms. Mary Banks Lavender, grandmother of fourth-grader, Heather Haesley, for a special presentation in the library. Ms. Lavender is a member of the Tri-County Quilt Guild, and we were very happy to have her visit with our students just in time for Grandparents & Special Friends Day. Ms. Lavender read "The Name Quilt" and brought a quilt made by the guild members that goes along with the book. The students loved hearing the story and listening to Ms. Lavender tell them about quilting, and how quilts can hold memories and tell stories. The students were reminded that hearing stories passed down from their grandparents is very valuable and meaningful.
