Hello Parents and Guardians,
Thank you for supporting your child’s (children’s) education in new ways during these challenging times. We are here to help too. Stories that Soar! believes that learning should include creativity, imagination, and joy—the exact things that inspire kids to engage. For many students, Stories that Soar! and the Magic Box Family are familiar friends. They know they can write about anything at all for the Magic Box. They also look forward to seeing which stories will be produced and shared with the school community and beyond! The following information will help YOU help your child/children participate.

Magic Box stories are not graded, but they do help kids practice writing skills without the pressure of “getting it wrong”

Feeding the Magic Box
· If your child needs help writing, that is fine, but please make sure the words and ideas come from the child
· We respect your child’s privacy and will only list their first name and the name of their teacher if their story is selected for presentation
Stories that Soar! Week
Your student’s school will get its very own original show using stories they wrote. During STS! Week, you will receive one episode a day. Episodes run 10-15 minutes and contain 3-4 stories.
Feedback allows students to engage in reflection, recall, and critical thinking. We count on YOU to help encourage this important step.
After STS! Week, stories will become public on our YouTube channel for easy sharing
