CHARLOTTE – Ardrey Kell High School’s sixth annual book drive culminated April 26 with a community children’s show.
Advanced theater classes, in conjunction with the Exceptional Children’s department, performed “Bedtime Stories (As Told By Our Dad) (Who Messed Them Up)” for 400 first-graders from Huntingtowne, Pineville and Sterling elementary schools
After the performance, first-graders were treated to lunch and one-on-one time with theater students. They each received a T-shirt, two Dr. Seuss books, and custom bookmarks made by art students.
The Dr. Seuss books were donated by the Ardrey Kell community and also purchased with money raised at a fundraiser hosted by DeSano Pizzeria and Urbane South in Waverly. Ardrey Kell Principal David Switzer and his administration provided the shirts and lunches.
“The continued support we receive from Mr. Switzer and the Ardrey Kell administration is integral to our success,” theater teacher Brian Seagroves said. “We look forward to continuing this great service for many years to come.”
