On Thursday, March 2, 2017 award winning children’s author and poet Kwame Alexander will be visiting South Milwaukee Middle School. South Milwaukee Middle School was selected from several schools around Southeastern Wisconsin to host Mr. Alexander. This presentation is part of his worldwide tour promoting his three new books that are to be released this spring. His newest book, Playbook, 52 Rules to Aim, Shoot, and Score in This Game Called Life is a collection of his poems, quotes from famous people, illustrations and memories from his middle school years. The book and Mr. Alexander’s energetic style make this an amazing opportunity for our students as they continue to grow in literacy and character. The district’s Library Media Specialists, Diane Konjura and Betsy Daniels will be working with students and Language Arts teachers throughout the month of February to introduce Kwame Alexander’s work and prepare for this wonderful opportunity.
