Happy Friday the 13th!

It was a busy week on the Pirate Ship, with 13 shows and 30 workshops happening in schools across New York City and Los Angeles. 

Did you know that Story Pirates not only works with kids in classroom workshops and after school programs, but with families as well? Story Pirates has developed a series of Family Engagement Workshops, designed to give parents and children fun learning enrichment activities to do together at school, as well as providing follow-up activities to do at home, which further reinforce academic skills in an engaging way.  

Happy weekend all! Remember, "Wrighting a story is life."
