Birchwood Elementary School takes the stage

June 5, 2014

Roll out the red carpet; the stars are shining at Birchwood Elementary School!

Over the last week, students took to the stage for five different performances.

  • On Wednesday, May 28, Mrs. Querbes and Mrs. VanAlstyne's second grade classes, along with members of Mrs. Frament and Mrs. Denman's classes performed the musical "Goin' Buggy," delighting a student audience during the day and families at night.
  • The very next evening, K-5 students read works of original and published poetry in front of a full house at Birchwood's Fourth Annual Poetry Open Mic Night.
  • The busy week concluded on Tuesday, June 3, with the 4th/5th Grade Drama Club's fun filled rendition of Tom Sawyer. The drama club was able to pull off two great performances after only 11 rehearsals.

Congratulations to the talented students and a heartfelt thanks to the teachers, staff, and parents who made these memorable experiences possible!
