Local Author Visits Kit Carson's Scholars

Local author and meteorologist, Kevin Janison visited with Kit Carson's scholars on October 23rd. He shared his book, "How Stinkville Got Cleaned up", with students.

In May 2007, the first Deputy Dorkface adventure was published, “Deputy Dorkface; How Stinkville Got Cleaned Up.” The book is based on a bedtime story Kevin told his children about a town where nobody takes a bath. Kevin would make up the Deputy Dorkface stories to tell his children, their friends, cousins, and anybody who would listen. They were by request, delivered almost every night. It was Improv by Dad. By the way, the name “Deputy Dorkface” was just made up to make the kids laugh. It worked!

Kevin gives over 100 school presentations each year; sharing his stories, the importance of reading, and taking the students on an interactive journey through the publishing process. In 2014, he visited schools from California to North Carolina.

In 2015, Trutherton was honored as a Finalist in the USA Best Book Awards. In 2014, it won the Best Picture Book of the year in the General, Early Reader category from the Children’s Literary Classics. In 2013, Mannerland won the Gold, for Best Picture Book (General, Early Reader) from Children’s Literary Classics.

Carson Garden Project Updates

Another project has been unearthed at Kit Carson International Academy. After months of planning, Mrs. Snipes helped cap off the irrigation lines so that we can begin building up our garden beds this fall. Check out the photos as the team moved in, removed sod, designed and installed irrigation lines, built raised garden beds, and planted our new orchard. Soon our cougars will be planting vegetables and learning from our resident gardener. This is a HUGE project in which the Carson students will be involved this fall. We're looking forward to sampling the food produced and sharing it with our school community!
