Gallery: Silverthorne Elementary School celebrating spring in the valley

On June 1, Silverthorne Elementary School staff, students, and parents celebrated spring in Houston. “We had a wonderful day last Thursday celebrating spring in our valley with our many activities and guest speakers,” said Julie Krall, principal of Silverthorne Elementary School. “The students were led through many interesting stations where they cooked bannock on a stick, worked with textiles, learned to drum some Witsuwit’en songs, played Witsuwit’en language games with Dorris Rosso, and were transported back in time in our imaginations with stories told by Witsuwit’en storyteller, Mel Bazil.”
