Authors, Illustrators, & Journalists Club

Authors, Illustrators, and Journalists (AIJ) Academy

Under the direction of AIJ Advisor  Grace Nall, our students are becoming authors, illustrators and journalists!

Besides making short films, AIJ writes, illustrates, as well as interviews authors and illustrators. 

In addition, AIJ leads Read Across America activities to promote literacy. AIJ works as a team to show how we should care about others, our school and community.
