The “Stories Alive” story-collecting machine will be at Bellview Elementary School when classes resume after Spring Break.
“Stories Alive” is a nonprofit organization that focuses on literacy and performing arts by transforming students’ stories into artistic performances. Bellview students’ stories will be transformed into live performances during a May 26 school assembly.
Writer’s workshops are scheduled for after school on Wednesdays in April and on Saturday mornings at the Ashland public library.
Judy Cox, author of Ukulele Hayley, will be a special guest at the Saturday, April 16 workshop. Cox’s book is a nominated title for this year’s Beverly Cleary Children’s Choice Award.
Last year at this time, there was a flurry in Bellview library of children asking for paper so they could write and illustrate stories.
Last year’s stories were collected into a beautiful hardcover book that was donated to Bellview library. The children are really excited to read their stories, and those written by their peers.
