Bonduel Elementary School

The Bonduel Elementary first-graders have been working on “Wizard of Oz”-themed activities such as characters, setting, vocabulary, math word problems, compare/contrast, fairy tales and graphing. This is in preparation for their production of the mini musical, “The Wizard of Oz.”

They have been practicing their songs and parts since the beginning of March and are very excited to show off their hard work. They will perform at 1:30 p.m. May 19 at Bonduel High School in Sousa Hall. Community members are welcome to come and enjoy the presentation.

The children also make digital pictures of themselves in costume, which is shown at the conclusion when they are introduced. Each year we add more to the performance to make it better than before. Mark your calendars and make sure you come early to get a good seat. You won’t want to miss it! Refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the presentation.

Gresham Community School

Gresham Community School held its annual powwow on May 5. The event was put together by the culture club students. Everyone was encouraged to dance and enjoy traditional foods.

The spring soiree begins at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. Everyone is welcome to come enjoy the music performed by the students.

The school is participating in a walk for cystic fibrosis on Friday. Gresham students walk in memory of a former Gresham student who lost his life to the disease. The walk is open to anyone in the community, and everyone is encouraged to come and support the cause.
