On Tuesday of this week our school was treated to two dazzling productions of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, performed by the fifth grade. All 21 students did an amazing job of portraying their character, sometimes several characters with multiple costume changes. Even our youngest Kindergartners sat enthralled for an hour watching the show. Parents and staff alike raved at the kids' great performances.
This school year, we are making a conscious choice to give our graduating class even more important and meaningful educational experiences. This impressive theater production is one. In April, they will embark on a five-day, four-night educational trip to the Mesa Verde area, at Crow Canyon Archaeological Center.
For this week's Among Friends' column, I am writing less - so that the photographs of the Harry Potter play may speak for themselves. All of these pictures were taken by Meg Hansen. You can see even more photos of the show on our school’s Facebook page. Enjoy.
