Tall Tales

Mrs. Fay’s and Mr. Brindisi’s class put on a delightful play on March 18th. Mrs. Fay produced 3 plays; “Paul Bunyan” , “Johnny Appleseed”, and “John Henry”. The plays included joyful music, funny comedy, and provided the kids lots of knowledge about these 3 historical people. The classroom overflowed with many parents and friends to see these wonderful kids perform 3 amazing plays!
