Pontotoc Elementary Announcements
Terrance "Da Story Weaver"
On Tuesday, February 2nd, Pontotoc Elementary kicked off the month long celebration of Black History month by welcoming Terrance "Da Story Weaver" Roberts to school. He presented folktales, stories, and fables in the West African Tradition to students in all grades. In the afternoon, he shared tools of his trade with teachers. Students know that a well-crafted story has "voice, body, imagination, concentration, and cooperation."
