Wow! What A Day with Tim Green!

This past Wednesday was a special day!  We had an author come to visit with third - sixth grades.  Tim Green, author of some of our favorite books, shared an inspirational message including topics of reading, education, and having good character.  Students and teachers were enthused and inspired from his message.

Mr. Green also held a book signing for students.  He visited with each student while signing their books.

After our author visit, students and staff were asked to share their thoughts about the author visit.  Here is a short video highlighting some student responses.

We also had the opportunity for students to win a copy of Tim Green's newest book, Kid Owner. Third - Sixth grade students were automatically entered into a drawing.  Each classroom teacher and the libraries also received a copy of this book.

Tim Green is an author of realistic fiction books for middle grade students, a former NFL player for the Atlanta Falcons, and a lawyer.  To see the books Mr. Green has written or for more information about him visit his website at

We are very thankful for the Lakeview PTO, Solon Middle School PTO, and the Solon Women's Club that helped make Tim Green's visit possible for our students!  It was a very memorable experience.
