Young Author’s Presentation

On June 22nd, Sacred Heart Fifth Graders presented the book they created with the Young Author’s Program. The Young Authors’ program was started in 1980 by Mrs. McQuillen, a fifth grade teacher  at Sacred Heart.  The program has always been a milestone for the Fifth grade before they transition into Junior High. 

Young Authors


Fifth Grade students did a Unit on poetry and were then asked to illustrate their literary creations.  Each student wrote 4 pieces of poetry and illustrated two pages. This year the students were able to incorporate their skills in technology to create a book of poetry.  Each student has a QR code attached to the pages. The QR code links to a video of a student reading their poems. 

Mixbook was used to publish a hardcover book with their poems.  To purchase the book please contact    Mrs. Spordone ( or Mrs. Conlan (
