Students Visit “Big Nate” Author

On Tuesday, March 17th, families from Saint Matthias traveled to Rockville to meet author/cartoonist Lincoln Peirce who writes the “Big Nate” series.  Mrs. O’Hare, our upper level librarian, alerted families to the event.  Each year, authors also visit Saint Matthias to share about the writing process.  This year, visits have been made possible thanks to Skype in the Classroom as well!
