We were part of the first audience to view a performance in the brand new theater at Wydown and it was an incredible experience. The theater was beautiful but the acting was what really made our time there special. Not only was it fun because teachers got to see past students in the spot light but it gave the 5th graders a glimpse into a part of middle school. The play was titled, "Much Ado About Middle School," and gave us a look at some typical and not-so-typical middle school life.
Before the performance, the 5th graders were introduced to the principal, their grade-level principal, and their counselor for next year. This trip was the first of many to help students have a smooth transition up to middle school. I think our students left feeling more excited than ever about the upcoming changes.
