First- and fourth-grade students sang for a standing-room-only audience.
B.D. Gullett Elementary fit two events in one performance: Valentine’s Day and Earth Day.
Thursday night, Feb. 11, first graders sang and danced to songs about Valentine’s Day. Fourth graders sang for Earth Day and performed skits in between numbers that taught the audience about the importance of saving endangered species and being eco-conscious.
Family members filled the cafeteria, including relatives who had traveled across the country to come and watch.
“I came all the way from Michigan to see this,” said Marsha Parks, who watched her grandson, Niko Sabou, during the fourth-grade performance.
