K-2 Creative Arts & Sciences: Kemp Harris!

Kemp Harris is Coming to Underwood (Virtually!) on May 26th

The Underwood PTO is bringing Kemp Harris to virtually visit Underwood’s K-2 students (in-person and DLA) on Wednesday, May 26th as the spring Creative Arts and Science enrichment program!

Storyteller Kemp Harris brings his experience as composer, musician, children’s author, actor and teacher to the classroom. His storytelling program includes developmentally appropriate stories that incorporate music and audience participation.  He enjoys keeping the oral tradition of “telling” alive.  Stories range from traditional tales, African folk tales and original stories.

A former Newton Public School teacher, Mr. Harris taught Kindergarten and 1st grades for 38 years.  He wrote the children’s book/song, “Snow” and has performed as a storyteller and musician at festivals, schools and libraries across the country, performing on stage with Taj Mahal, Gil Scott-Heron and blues artist, Koko Taylor.
