    Great job on all the stories! I now know several African folk tales and how nice to hear them, not just read them. The original artwork added to the experience and captured the themes of the stories being told.

The students who participated in this year's PYWC include: Katherine Kane, Tyler Williams, Lucy Dunham, Madi Caviness, Spencer Vass, Anna Gilbert, Caroline Jessup, and Kabir Mann. {ywc.jpg}
