Our 5th grade students performed their original musical theater productions this week.
It was a wonderful chance for our talented students to showcase their varied talents outside the traditional classroom environment - consistent with 217's mission to educate the whole child.
To create the shows, the 5th graders engaged in the creative process of writing a script, song lyrics, composing music, and staging their own original musical as part of a musical theater residency, funded by the PTA in partnership with Main Street Theatre & Dance Alliance.
Thank you to our 5th grade classroom teachers, Ms. Ho and Ms. Pavone, for incorporating this wonderful enrichment into the 5th graders' schedule and for supporting the students throughout the process. And thank you to the 217 Administration for incorporating and supporting this and our other enrichment programs.
And last, but certainly not least, a HUGE congratulations to all of our performers on a job well done!I
