Nathaniel Rochester School Heroes Project


This book was a project inspired and developed by Ms. Michelle Cope, a fifth grade teacher at Nathaniel Rochester Community School Number 3.



The Final Product

To quote directly from the book: This is a special book. It’s about heroes. Written by future heroes. Inspired by real heroes.


A Work of Art

The students were involved in every part of the process. Their words, enthusiasm and artwork brought the book to life.


A Group Effort

Dedicated teachers, tutors, students and a generous printer showed what could be accomplished by working together.
