Mike Lupica will visit Hampden Meadows School today

Posted

Students at Hampden Meadows School will be treated to a handful of special visitors in the next few weeks.

The fun begins today, Sept. 15, when author and sports writer Mike Lupica stops by the school to speak to students and sign copies of his latest book "Last Man Out." (Mr. Lupica will also make an appearance tonight at 7 p.m. at Barrington Books for a public book-signing event.)

Barrington schools earn recognition for innovative learning approaches.

Next week, Jarrett Krosoczka, the author of numerous graphic novels including the Lunch Lady series, will stop by Hampden Meadows School for a special program for local students. Mr. Krosoczka will be at the school on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 20 and 21 for numerous work sessions with students. Mr. Krosoczka's visit was made possible through a Barrington Education Foundation grant.

Also, on Thursday, Sept. 29, Wally the Green Monster, the mascot for the Boston Red Sox, will stop by the school to share reading strategies with the students. Hampden Meadows School teacher Kayla Toman helped organize the special event.
