WVHS collaborates on Once Upon a Child project

June 9, 2023

Warwick Valley High School held its 2023 Once Upon A Child symposium this week where nine original children’s stories were revealed.


Once Upon a Child is a collaborative effort between the English, Art and Career and Technical Education departments. Students from Danielle Debella’s Creative Writing classes write an original children’s story. Artists in Kristen Spano’s Drawing and Painting and Portfolio classes illustrate the story and produce a book. And, students in Daniel Cecconie’s Video Production classes make a narrated video of the children’s story.

To view the video, visit the District’s “Warwick Valley Television” YouTube Channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkrGr3MoBL8
