On Friday, February thirteenth, at precisely nine o’clock on the dot, the curtain went up as the Kindergarten and First Grade had their first show of the school year. It was called: School Rocks. Mrs. Canja and Mrs. Irwin worked really hard with the children to make this show a huge success! All of the parents, 2nd and 3rd grade, plus Ms. Fernandez, Ms. Snow, Mrs. Slack and many other teachers, sat in the audience and enjoyed the show.
The children sang: ABC Rock; Good Morning, Good Morning; Number Rock; Months of the Year; and the Days of the Week. The audience went wild as they sang and swayed along with the performers as they sang these classic songs. Jamel even spotted Mrs. Slack and Mrs. Berretta dancing in the back of the gym to “The Months of the Year!”
The performers had many feelings. Deniya and Breanna were happy and they were smiling on the stage.
Furqan and Muhammad were proud as they recited: “Aren’t you very proud of us we all tried our best. We performed and entertained for you, but now we need to rest!” The boys ended this very sweetly, as they rested their heads on their hands like little angels.
Samanchie and Sakinah were both a little nervous and happy and excited. Samanchie said, “I was all mixed up with lots of feelings.”
Sateen had this to say, “I was happy because my mommy, my daddy and my big sister Tata came to my show!”
Kayla was excited, “because of all of the balloons and all of the people!”
Delani whispered, “I was scared because there were so many children and parents.”
Sumanchie added, “plus everyone was taking lots of pictures!”
Sarah said “the show was incredible and we felt famous!”
Monica was “happy because all of the parents were cheering me!”
Jamel was excited and nervous, but he remembered what Mrs. Canja said,
Mrs. Canja said, “ If the paper rips, the show must go on!” This made Jamel feel better. His twin brother Justin was also a little nervous because everyone was taking pictures with cameras.”
Edouard said, “I liked that everyone was taking pictures.”
When asked what she thought about the show, Mrs. Canja had this to say, “I was so proud of all of the children who performed so well.”
When the show ended all of the performers bowed and the audience clapped plus Ms. Fernandez shouted, “No HOMEWORK!”
