This past Thursday the Backyard Theatre company and SAC hosted the annual Christmas showcase at the SRSS theatre. There were three plays one from each class. The event was a huge success and attendance was up by over 100 percent from last year. The students did such a great job and I am so proud of them for having learned the plays and memorizing all their lines in time. The three plays were "The Mitten" Based on the popular children's book, "The smallest Elf" and "How the Grinch saved Christmas".

I wouldn't say that I was surprised to see the children do such a good job I was just blown away with their commitment and effort - some of the students can't even read yet and they managed to memorize their lines.
