SCHOOL-WIDE EFFORT: In a play written expressly for this occasion, students of the Beebe School, from kindergarten to youngsters in the fifth grade took part in "The Rascals Rock Through Time", produced recently in the Barry Auditorium at the Middle School. Besides the eight young people in the cast, parents and faculty provided support, making this a multi-generational project. For the whole story, click on the picture for a link to Director Laurie Frank's narrative.
