Author Visit - "I See With My Heart"

Posted on: October 27, 2023
Coming Soon

We are fortunate to be an inclusive school and take pride that MWE welcomes all children from across the Southwest Local School District, regardless of any challenges they may have!  Our students receive high-quality instruction, interventions, and supports that enable them to meet their needs and make growth academically and socially. 

Recently, I was contacted by Bethany Van Meter about bringing her dog to our school for an author's visit.  Bethany's dog, River, was abandoned then adopted by the Van Meter family.  River has no eyes, but is able to experience the world in a whole new way.  You can read more about River's journey here:  Miss Bethany & River will be visiting MWE on November 14, 2023!  They will be reading their children's book, I See With My Heart, at 3 assemblies throughout the school day.  The book focuses on River and his journey of discovery, what it means to be different, and how we can all learn to see the world in a new way.  River's heartwarming tale teaches children about acceptance, love, and the power of determination.

MWE is offering pre-sale orders of the children's book,  I See With My Heart.  Order your child's copy today and let River’s story inspire your family!  Please type in the discount code “shipping” to waive any shipping charges. In the notes section, include that the order is for MWE on 11-14-23, the student’s name, and any details about wanting your child's book signed.  

Thanks to Ms. Lisa Niesen, one of our MWE Intervention Specialists in the Multiple Disabilities Department, and her sensational students for coordinating the assemblies and sorting the book orders when they arrive.
