What's Happening at Davis

Students share stories in Weber State Storytelling Festival

storytelling festival

Once upon a time, students in Davis School District began participating in the Weber State Storytelling Festival — 25 years ago to be exact.

Every year, elementary students work with a storytelling coach at their school, who helps them perfect the art of performing a folktale, personal narrative or humorous story in front of an audience.

Two or three students are chosen from each school to participate in the district competition, where a panel of judges grades the performer on their poise, voice expression, body language and ability to connect with the audience.

Good news on horizon
of pandemic

John Zurbuchen, Assistant Superintendent

February 2nd is Groundhog Day. This is the day that Punxsutawney Phil either sees his shadow or not and predicts the remainder of winter. It is also the name of a Bill Murray movie from 1993, "Groundhog Day."  His character is covering the festivities and gets caught in a daily repeat of the same day. He goes to bed and wakes up the next day to repeat the previous day.

We all now have a bit of a kinship to Murray’s character. The COVID pandemic sort of feels like Groundhog Day.  Each day we go to bed only to wake up to the continued impacts in our lives of the pandemic.  We’ve now been living this reality for a year. And, unfortunately, we seem to be having to live with it for the foreseeable future.  Murray’s movie was a comedy; ours is not.
