History of America Comes Alive at Sandy Ridge
The history of America came alive on April 8th as the students in third grade and the Musical Theater Group, under the direction of Mrs. Melissa LoPresto, presented "An American Dream." This show, written by John Jacobsen and Roger Emerson, was a musical celebration of America's Early Heritage. It correlated the Common Core Social Studies curriculum to include the Discovery of America, the Revolutionary War, the Westward Expansion, and the Civil War. It concluded with a rousing patriotic number that brought the performers together with over 200 students on stage! It was a great show and a wonderful journey through the history of America.
