Bear Creek Elementary kicked off their Arts Festival Week with a school-wide production of Ronald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Teachers, students, parents, and community members worked together to create a "living book."
Sixth graders were the playwrights; fifth graders designed the costumes; fourth graders were the actors. Third graders were the singers-songwriters; second graders were the dancers and performed the roles of the Oompa-Loompas; first graders designed the sets; and kindergarteners were members of the audience.
