KILLINGTON— Every year the sixth graders at Killington Elementary School perform a Greek play in the spring. This year’s play was exceptionally entertaining. Teacher Mrs. Simmonds worked hard on writing a screen play for the class, giving the same old story a brand new twist, which really fit well with the personality of this year’s graduating class.

The students in this class have a flair for the dramatic, and are not at all shy on stage. They used REO Speedwagon’s song, with the famous lines, “I heard from a friend who, heard it from a friend who, heard it from another you were messin’ around …”

The audience was familiar with the tune, and sang along with the class during the chorus, with Jacob Roth leading the way with his solo singing of many of the lyrics. The song was very appropriate for the story line. The kids seem to really enjoy themselves, and the audience was very impressed with the effort they put in.
