Turner Elementary Creation Reaches the Stars!

Turner Elementary Creation Reaches the Stars! Willis, TX, April 16, 2015--Turner’s “Flat Stanley” reaches for the stars beginning the adventure of a lifetime on March 27, 2015 with the crew from Expedition 43 & NASA Flight Engineer, Scott Kelly to the International Space Station. Inspired by Jeff Brown’s book series, first graders created Flat Stanley cutouts as a way to improve reading and writing skills. The students sent off their creations to family and friends who will return them in May with pictures and information outlining their adventures. The lucky one who went to the space station won’t return until next year, but should have some out-of-this-world experiences to share.
