Some Show! The 3rd Graders performed the 4th Annual Third Grade Musical on Thursday, May 21st. It has become tradition that the Third Grade Musicals are all adaptations of children’s literature, so this year the students put on an amazing production of “Charlotte’s Web.” From Wilbur - James C., to the fancy spider, Charlotte - Chloe L., to the dirtiest rat in town, Templeton - Roger R., and all the farmers and barnyard animals in between, the performers charmingly brought this classic favorite to life. Parents and Lower Campus children laughed and cried along with the famous storybook characters as they followed Wilbur’s journey to becoming “Some Pig,” truly “Terrific” and “Humble” indeed. The musical is an exciting culminating event for the 3rd Grade students as they prepare to cross the bridge to the Upper Campus for their middle school years. In the words of the baby spider, “We’re leaving on the warm updraft. This is our moment for setting forth. We are going out into the world to make webs for ourselves!” Fantastic performance, Third Graders! Your teachers look forward to following your music and theater careers on the Upper Campus!

Biography Day Biography Day

Throughout the school year, Second Graders have been learning about and reading various genres. Recently, they've been focused on biographies. Each student chose a biography chapter book to read and then wrote an oral presentation about the life of his or her character. To share what they've learned, the students came to school on May 8th dressed in full costume ready to portray the people they'd learned about.
 
As they have been over the the many years of this 2nd Grade tradition, the students were enthusiastic and informative on Biography Day! The costumes looked wonderful and the speeches were well rehearsed and entertaining. All attendees left knowing plenty more than they knew when they arrived. Thank you 2nd Graders.

PBDA's MathCounts Team was unable to participate on the main competition day because our Field Day and the competition were on the same day. By special agreement, our team competed separately and then their scores were included in the final results. Our Team of Taylor Frederick (Captain), William de Melo, Kristen Frederick, Daniela Garcia, Zane Ice, Patton Janssen, Beauregard Pearl, and Abigail Wandoff placed 5th in Palm Beach County. Among the top 30 students county-wide were Abigail - 13th, William - 16th, Kristen - 24th, and Daniela - 25th. Congratulations all!
