Courtesy of Bookmarks, students in grades 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8th grade Art and Chinese students were treated to a visit with Grace Lin, a beloved Newbery-Honor author and illustrator. Here's her TED Talk about the importance of books being both mirrors and windows for our children. Ms. Lin asked students to bring paper and a colored pencil for a draw-along.

From refugee camp to summer camp, 26 children got their first taste of American life in Winston-Salem this week. Many of the kids — who attended the summer program at Summit School — fled countries where their families were hunted or where they grew up in tents in constant fear. None of them have been here longer than nine months and most only moved here a month ago from countries halfway around the world, such as Congo, Cambodia, Tanzania and Syria.
