MOUNTAIN SCHOOL News:
Five classes of first and second grade students put on Disney’s musical ‘Cinderella Kids’ April 3 in the Mountain Elementary School gymnasium.
Each student had a special role – whether Cinderella, narrator, solo singer, a wheel of the carriage, or something else. Six students performed as Cinderella. Families and teachers all worked together to help the students perform this “happily-ever-after” tale.
Mountain art teachers, Lorri McInroy and Stephanie Rittner, helped make props and backdrops, the parents and grandparents helped with costumes and hanging the backdrops. The teachers helped with logistics, memorizing lines and music.
The students learned about working together, singing (pitch, high/low and fast/slow), what cue lines are, moving, acting, portraying emotions, using props, solo singing and staying focused. The students loved working on and performing Disney’s Cinderella Kids … they were so excited and had a ton of fun!
Approximately 100 guests came to watch the performance, as well as all the other grades and teachers at Mountain School.
The parents had comments like that of Karen Doebling saying, “That was so fun to watch!” “Not the typical elementary music performance for sure.” “We’re very impressed” “What a fun way to learn music.”
Mountain Elementary School music teacher, Kelsey Cline, is very proud of all the young actors!
