Mountain Valley Elementary students held spellbound by storytellers
Students at Mountain Valley Elementary School sat spellbound as storytellers unraveled tales of Texas folklore and local legends.
The three visiting speakers were from the Storytelling Guild in San Antonio, according to Sue Harris, Mountain Valley Elementary School theatre arts teacher.
