One Story Week

Recently, our Lower School celebrated their annual One Story Week. The week was centered on author (and Westtown alum!) Kat Yeh ’82. After reading two of Kat’s books, The Friend Ship and The Magic Brush, students participated in mixed-grade activities around the themes of the two books: friendship and aspects of Chinese culture. Some of the special classes included collaborative collage of self-portraits for our Lower School Friend Ship (pictured here with Kat), creative writing and storytelling, painting wishes, paper folding, guest readers, and learning Chinese language and writing from special guests, community members, and Upper School students in Chinese classes. To wrap up the week, students were treated to a sneak peek of Kat’s soon-to-be published newest book, Just One Little Light, then she led students in creating an original story together. Please enjoy our One Story Week gallery here. Our thanks to Kat Yeh ’82 for making the week so special for our Lower Schoolers!
