Atherton: 'Milk and Cookies with the Mayor'

 

Editor's Note: When we heard Atherton's mayor was attending this event, we asked one of the participants to send us a report. Fiona is a 7-year-old first-grader at Sacred Heart School.

Atherton Mayor Elizabeth Lewis went to the Sacred Heart School Book Fair event "Milk and Cookies with the Mayor" on Wednesday night. It was an extravaganza.

There were about 100 people there, and most of them were wearing pajamas. She read four books. She also did a speech on leadership, especially girls leadership.

SHS first-grader Charlie Ford said: "It was so cool! My favorite book she read was 'Hug Machine.'"

SHS Librarian Alison Anson said: "It was an honor to have the mayor read at our library."

The money from the Book Fair goes to Sacred Heart School, especially the library. Everyone had fun at "Milk and Cookies with the Mayor," especially the mayor.

Good job writing this article Fiona! Abigail shared this with us today in class. Charlie even read his own quote. We also think its cool that your dad is the vice Mayor.
