On June 7, Hamilton Elementary School students presented their version a Roald Dahl classic, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. After six months of rehearsals, and set designing, students showed their determination and commitment as they gave an hour and a half performance before an audience of 500.

“I was amazed at how some struggling readers grew to become fluent readers and performers right in front of our eyes,” said Mrs. Belcher, assistant director.  

Disguised as a “drama club” students learned about identifying with character emotions, identifying themes, the importance of settings, as well as public speaking skills.

“Never in their wildest dreams did they imagine English Language Arts could be so sweet,said Mr. Rossler, director.  

Generous donations from community and staff members, through Donors Choose, supported Hamilton's purchase of almost $2,000 worth of audio, lighting, and other technology for special effects.
