NEWFOUNDLAND- The Wallenpaupack Area South Elementary School will be filled with the sounds of a rockin’ school day when the fourth grade presents their annual music program on Monday, January 28.
The children will sing about everyday school-time classes and activities in the humorous and clever songs from "School Daze" by Janet Gardner and "Get In the Game" by Mac Huff and John Jacobson. The evening begins with the assembly saluting the flag and singing our National Anthem followed by the school district’s Alma Mater. The audience will be reminded of "concert manners" when the children perform "The Concert Etiquette Rap."
The "School Daze" songs describe the consequences of running in the halls, difficulty opening your locker, mixed messages in the cafeteria between girls and boys and pizza, working out in the gym, the dread of detention and being in a "daze" at school. A special guest speaker will provide commentary! For the song "I Love My Locker" Murphy Schratt will act out thepart of the tardy student! Elizabeth Lewis, Victoria Barclay and Kaitlynn Elders will be the confused girls in "Cafeteria Confusion!" while the hungry boys are Kent Glatz, Ben Falgie and Charles Washburn!
