This is the last year at Madrona School for third-grade teacher Wendy Prust, but she left the school leaving a lasting impression on her students.

Prust — who will be moving to Europe soon — wanted to say good-bye to her students in a special way. She had read aloud the first two books in the “Smells Like Dog” trilogy by local author Suzanne Selfors to her class, but there was no time to finish before her departure.

Undeterred, the teacher purchased copies of the third book for each of her students and invited the author to school for a surprise visit and reading.
