Melodrama, Struggle, Success and Gold!
The fourth grade presented their annual play, “California Missions… and More!” on Thursday, March 10. The play, which highlights the 4th grade social studies curriculum, is set in 1920s Hollywood and takes the audience to the sound stage of a blockbuster movie in the making. Director JB and a cast of characters bring the history of California to life, from the fate of the Native American tribes and the building of the missions through the gold rush and western expansion and finally statehood. Of course it wouldn’t be a blockbuster in the making (or a Mayfield play) without a little singing, dancing (square dancing anyone?), humor and talented musicians thrown in, and this fourth grade class handled it all like pros!
