Half day program - $695 plus travel

The 1/2 day option may include up to two 45 minute presentations along with an author signing time where Ronda has an opportunity to meet the children who purchased her books and sign them personally. Ronda enjoys this time of interacting with the students. If the 1/2 day session is in the afternoon there is an option for Ronda to conduct an after school session for the teachers at a nominal fee. The topic for that session is flexible to meet the needs of the faculty.

Full day program - $1200 - $1395 plus travel

The full day session may include up to five presentations. A normal full day includes two 45 minute presentations along with two Writing Workshops  (which the Principals rave about!).  A book signing session is part of the day also. The option for the teachers in-service session after school is available. With a Full Day program a Family Night is available  at half its normal rate.

Multiple day options

Flexibility is the key for the multiple day option.  We will work with you to tailor-make this a program that best suits your school or district.
