Each year, Morgan Elementary School students show off their storytelling skills as they compete for the opportunity to represent the school at the annual Weber State Storytelling Festival in Ogden, Utah.
All students from first grade to fifth grade learn a story. They share their stories with their classmates, where two are chosen from each class to share with the entire grade.
Two students from each grade are chosen to share their stories in a school-wide assembly.
On Jan. 30, 10 students, two from each grade, told their stories in front of the entire school.
This can be a pretty scary experience, but they did a great job sharing their talents.
At the end of the assembly, four students were chosen to represent the school and participate in the Weber State Storytelling Festival as student storytellers. There they will share the stage with other school, local, and even national storytellers.
We are proud of William Graham (first grade), Courtney Ellis (first grade), Everett Gilson (fourth grade), and Garrett George (fifth grade), who will represent Morgan Elementary at the Weber State Storytelling Festival in February.
The festival runs Monday, Feb. 24, through Wednesday, Feb. 26. For more information, please visit http://community.weber.edu/storytelling/. Tickets for one free family admission to the evening family events are available at the Morgan Elementary School office.
We would like to thank all of the children, parents, teachers and community members who participated in or helped with the storytelling.
