The Renaissance Education Department
will host its ninth annual MindSprouts Creative Writing Showcase on Saturday, June 20th at 7 pm, and two Ontario Middle School sixth graders will be among those whose writing will be brought to life on stage, readers’ theatre style. The MindSprouts program is open to any student in kindergarten through 12th grade, and Mrs. Murray encouraged her students to submit a short story, play, or poem that corresponded to the 2020 theme: “Magical Mysteries!” Amber Parker wrote a short story titled “The Magical Wand,” in which two middle schoolers find a magic wand in a tree and soon they are interacting with talking animals. Aileena Young composed a short story titled “Believe.” In it, a little girl named Marbella wants to know if the tooth fairy is real. This year’s showcase event will be held virtually. Catch it live on the Renaissance’s FaceBook page
