What Made Maddy Run - Meet the Author @ Ramsey High School

Back in September the entire WHS staff read the book, What Made Maddy Run, by Kate Fagan. As a staff, we discussed the book and it opened up the dialogue on mental health and the struggles our students are facing. A good amount of students also read the book and a few parents requested copies to read as well.  

The Ramsey School District has extended an invitation to the Waldwick community to meet the author, Kate Fagan, at Ramsey High School on Monday, January 29, at 7pm. I hope to see many of you there next Monday so the conversation can continue. 

If there is anyone who would like borrow the book, please reach-out and I can send a copy home.
