The event, which begins in the auditorium, will showcase student work from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, with a student from each grade reading a piece that he or she wrote. Afterward, demonstrations, presentations, displays and refreshments will be available throughout the building.

Younger children will have the opportunity to have pictures taken with Clifford the Big Red Dog. Books and other prizes will be awarded.
