Tall Tales

Intermediate students are exploring the larger than life characters of American tall tales. After identifying the characteristics of a tall tale, the children participated in a reader’s theater piece entitled “The Legend of Slappy Hooper.” Students are working in groups reading tales and trying to uncover the true identity of these American legends. When the groups complete their research on tall tales and legends, they will create PowerPoint presentations that will include their findings.

Peter Pan

The Greenwood Players are rehearsing lines, warming up singing voices, and completing sets and costumes for their upcoming production of “Peter Pan.” The Players, all of the fifth through eighth grade students at Greenwood Friends School, will perform this musical version of the classic story at the Caldwell Consistory in Bloomsburg February 20th at 7pm and 21st at 2pm.
