  • A Celebration of Time” is bigger than a traditional two-day festival. This year’s 10th annual Storytelling Festival by the Kalamazoo Valley Museum will be birthed over nine months, recognizing nine different holiday traditions plus a focus on how time itself is celebrated. Twenty-two storytellers from five countries and eight states will share stories highlighting traditions, the importance of relationships, and the movement towards peace, freedom and purpose. All stories will be available for digital viewing on the Museum’s YouTube channel and website for three months from the date they premiere.

    Check out stories on Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the International Day of Peace (also known as World Peace Day), Valentine’s Day, Passover and Easter. Stories around anniversaries, birthdays, how we grow, change, and the memories we create over time will also be celebrated.

Change for Change

  • Woodward Change Challenge

    Ms. Walker’s fifth grade students' recent "Change for Change" coin challenge raised $550 for Kalamazoo Animal Rescue. The service project was organized as part of MLK Day celebrations. It also was part of the "Betty White Challenge," a fundraiser for animal rescue organizations that was held in honor of the actress' long-standing love of animals. 

    Kalamazoo Animal Rescue is a nonprofit, volunteer organization that was founded in 1991 to provide refuge to homeless, stray and unwanted cats and dogs in Kalamazoo County. It works to provide foster and permanent homes for animals.

    The students created a school-wide competition to see which class could raise the most money through the month of January, the Top 3 winners receiving a pizza party thanks to Mr. Rocco.

    The class collected $550 for the K.A.R., with a PEEP classroom leading the way with over $90 collected! Some individual students donate $20-$30 toward the cause.

    MLive picked up the story and shared it with the community.
