Weekly Update from the P.S./I.S. 217 (Roosevelt Island School) PTA

Congratulations to Class 401 and 402 on the superb performances for Gold Opera last Tuesday (May 31st). Audience members were treated to each classes original performance that they worked on for the past month with Mr. Richard and Ms. Christina. The classes brainstormed their own idea, wrote out the storyline and then Mr. Richard took the story and set it to music with Ms. Christina working on choreography and staging.

It was amazing to hear the results as each class sang an original opera that told a unique story they had worked so hard on for the past month. What incredibly talented students 217 has! And many thanks to Ms. Specker (401) and Ms. Rubenstein (402) for their support and working with their classes on this exciting endeavor.
