Debbie Allaway directed the annual Glenwood School Spring Concert on May 9. The program began with the kindergarten through second grade students singing songs "Making Stone Soup" and "Stone Soup," and doing a dance from the play "Stone Soup."
Third through fifth graders appeared in a cute play called "The Case of the Missing Part of Speech -- A Melogrammar." The play featured Kinley Troh as Professor McMertrue who was looking for a particular part of speech that was missing from a speech she was writing. She was aided by Det. Hargraves (Lilly Molneaux) and Hector the dog (Bailey Gimlin) as they explored various parts of speech. Each part of speech sang an explanation of their purpose as they tried to help Prof. McMertrue find the part she was looking for. Parts of speech included Herb the Verb (Andy McFall); Nouns (Nick Palmer, Carmen Guzman, Erika Hernandez, Kaitlyn Masden, Ashley Marlatte, and Nahaleigh Schuster); Adjective (Brian Whitefield); Adverb (Bella Couch); Preposition (Derek Gimlin); Interjection (Marquis Tyndall); Conjunction (Liam McLaughlan); and Pronoun (Max Jacobsen).
The program concluded with the middle school and high school bands consolidating to perform "Procession from the Water Music," the theme from "Chariots of Fire," "The Man From Snowy River," and "God Bless America." Band students played the following instruments: Bethany Putnam -- flute; Tiffany McCoy, Vicky Valdez and Madi Couch -- clarinets; Spencer Hallenbeck -- alto sax; Becca Hallenbeck -- trumpet; and Forrest Putnam -- trombone.
Kudos to Mrs. Allaway and each of her students for working so hard to present a wonderful program for the community!
