Fifth-Grade Students Shine on Stage
In the final grade performances of the school year, the fifth-grade students took the stage to present, “Hello Out There,” performed by Mrs. Meder’s fifth-grade class. This musical journey told the story of the challenges our students have navigated throughout the year. The actors sang and danced their way through classic pop and rock and roll songs such as “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” “In My Room” and “Living on a Prayer.” They shared how online drama classes can teach us to go “Dancing in the Street,” and why to turn to each other when it all doesn’t make sense in the classic, “Stand By Me.” Together, the students demonstrated how transitions can be times of great learning and growth.
What happens when you come face to face with the game characters you create on your computer? Mrs. Doughterty’s class presents, “In “Life On Jupiter.” New student Marty is recruited by super smart Sadge to help her and her friends build a new game — Life on Jupiter. Through an encounter with these coders’ rivals, the Mathletes, they realize that Hope, one of the other new students, is actually a character from one of Sadge’s other codes. Together they learn to save Hope’s world and characters beyond.
