On Friday May 20th the 2nd grade performed the play Rosa Parks Sits Down and Takes a Stand.
Set in 1955-56, the play re-enacts Rosa Parks historical decision to keep her seat on a Montgomery city bus. Other characters in the play were Martin Luther King Jr., Edgar D. Nixon, the policeman, the bus driver, the narrators and (of course) the bus riders!.
Due to the large number of second graders, the play was performed twice with two different casts. The students did a fantastic job of memorizing their lines and following the director’s directions! Thanks to all the parents, grandparents and prayer pals who attended the performance!
