K-2 Musical Literacy Night

video

Kinder students from Ms. Sanchez and Mrs. Martinez's class collaborated with first and second graders from Mrs. Diaz, Mr. Ortega and Mr. James' class to present musicals based on the books The Story of Ferdinand and Caps for Sale.  Jr. High students in the Tech Theatre class were responsible for constructing and preparing set pieces and props.  Even our parent volunteers helped out by making papel picado for the bullfight scene in Madrid.  


Faith, from Mrs. Martinez's kinder class, used her time in writer's workshop to write a book about her experience performing as the bee in The Story of Ferdinand.
