Bravo to our 8th grade class!

In a joint effort between Social Studies, Language Arts, Speech, Drama, Chorus, and Band classes, the 8th graders presented their annual integrated drama on Thursday, May 14.   

Their original production, E Pluribus Unum (Latin for “Out of Many, One”), chronicled the adventures of Sammy Bradford and Bill Collier’s ancestors.  As the boys toured the Smithsonian National Museum, exhibits came to life, giving them glimpses into their ancestors’ involvement in many key events in American history.  All 29 students played roles in the drama, as the plot spanned from the years of settlement/colonization to the Civil War.

Musical pieces also brought to life the different eras depicted in the drama.  For the finale, students recited the powerful words of Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Address.”  It was an amazing performance by our students!
