My 2 grandchildren, Lily 7 and Charlie almost 4, were mesmerized, friends from outside of school were amazed and thoroughly entertained.  We laughed, we cried, and we clapped until our hands were sore!  My grandson and granddaughter joined in with spirit and at one point, Charlie was clapping on his head!!!! I was just bursting with pride for the students' hard and focused work with long hours, colleagues that I have always admired for their professionalism and creativity, are now super heroes and heroines! Last but anything but the least were all the parents who took ownership and with pride helped in every way imaginable, including making costumes and masks that were extraordinary.  Never have I felt so much a part of a "creative happening" that yielded such astonishing results.  Students, teachers, parents (of course those professionals behind the stage and new Performing Arts Center were a TEAM in the finest sense of the word.....Way to go everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It may be "the end" of an unforgettable performance but the spirit of all the animals remain with me, especially Joy the elephant....Autumn and Walter the giraffes will also be near and dear to my heart....along with those special students who through their own creative spirit brought these animals to life.  With love to everyone, Alice
