New Salem goes â€œBuggyâ€ with arrival of spring
Kindergarten and first-grade students at New Salem Elementary School presented their spring musical before a packed house of parents, grandparents and other special guests.
In this charming, whimsical March 3, 2009, musical review titled “Goin’ Buggy!” the country’s largest constituency – the insect population—aired its grievances, pointed with pride at its accomplishments and demanded its rights.
The delightful humor of the show brought chuckles from adults as well as children. One highlight of the show was the musical number, “That’s No Way To Treat A Ladybug,” featuring Lana the Ladybug played by Janet McGarvie, a kindergarten teacher at New Salem.
The entire musical production was under the direction of New Salem music teacher Jennifer Mascheri.
