Author Patricia Polacco Visits Yavneh Academy

“The Keeping Quilt” is a beautifully written and illustrated saga about the family history of Yavneh Academy guest author Patricia Polacco, who shared this story and others with the students and faculty on Tuesday, January 9, 2018. She spoke of the quilt’s journey through countries and time, the family memories it represents and the special place it occupies in the hearts of one and all.

The Yavneh students were entranced by Polacco’s warmth and sincerity as she took them through some of her personal educational challenges while extolling the love and support of her family and teachers. She challenged the students to be good to each other, to try harder, to reach higher and to care about the world in which they live.
