The School Library System of Genesee Valley Educational Partnership (GVEP) sponsors an annual Storytelling Festival for students in grades 3-8. The goals are to provide a rich learning experience for participants and to help build language skills and self-confidence. Public speaking skills are also strengthened. Each school in the School Library System holds a building-level selection process.
This year, six seventh-grade students from Byron-Bergen were selected to participate in the 2018 Storytelling Festival, which will be held at Pavilion Middle/High School on May 10, 2018. We know they will make their school proud!
