Visitation fifth-graders Liam Edel, Ian Lloyd, Charlie Schubert, Gabi Leon, Marin Kinsella, and Eleanor DuBois attended the 26th annual Hubb’s Children’s Literature Conference at the University of St. Thomas on Feb. 17. In addition, fifth graders were asked to prepare and deliver the introduction for keynote speaker and author Matt de la Pena who won the Newbery Medal in 2016 with his book “The Last Stop on Market Street.” Visitation fifth-graders recently completed a unit studying the history of the Newbery Medal and also read a Newbery-winning book of their choice.
