James R. Schirle Elementary School. Salem, OR 6

I’m at James R. Schirle Elementary today speaking to K-5 students. It’s a little over 40 miles from the farm, so again, another day without airports, airplanes, and hotels, which is always a pleasure. Speaking of which, so are the kids and teachers at Schirle. A wonderful bunch of excited readers! Go Schirle Sharks! Their way cool librarian is Holly Fiskum. Thank you inviting me to your school!

    What a perfect day! I’ve heard from so many families this evening as they process and remember the events from today. With your books, you have shown our students that every one of them is a reader…as long as they have the right book. We are all HUGE Roland Smith fans! Thanks for making a difference in our lives.

    Hi Holly, it was a perfect day, but much of that had to do with the wonderful, dedicated librarian (you) who organized the visit. Thank you for all of your kindnesses.

    Thank you so much Mr. Smith for coming. I was incredible luckey that my middle school had the day off. I loved watching each of the performances. That was probably the best thing Schirle Elemementry has done, calling you up. Thank you. Both of you
