The fifth graders performed for their classmates in an in-school performance on Wednesday, March 7 and conducted two night shows on Thursday, March 8 and Friday, March 8. The students worked very hard on a wide array of songs, created elaborate sets and donned festive costumes.

The story of “Wish Upon a Star” catapulted its audiences to Fairyland where Clara and her new best friend, Tinkerbell rallied the troops to clear Tinkerbell’s name and solve the mysterious disappearance of Disney’s 24k gold Celebration Mickey sculpture.
