The Waverly 7th grade students had the best learning experience this week. Waverly Jr. High collaborated with Piketon High School's musical department to bring the award winning novel, Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt to life expressed Mrs. Bonifield. She also said,
" I love that…..
~ students had the opportunity to experience the arts and a fantastic live musical performance. Great Job Piketon cast!!!
~I work in a district and have a principal, Ferdie Marquez , that supports me and allows me to teach using my own style.
~I witnessed my students (on their own) comparing and contrasting the novel with the musical, freely discussing: plot, theme, characters, setting, and even symbolism, which they had to infer at the end of the musical.
~ my students were actively learning and having fun doing it.
~ my students conducted themselves with pride, manners, respect, and gratefulness."
