Elementary Students Rock the School House

The gymnasium was rocking at May Howard Elementary School tonight. Students performed the musical School House Rock.

It's based on the popular Saturday morning series that teaches children about various subjects through songs. Remember "Conjunction Junction, what's your function?," "I'm just a bill," and "Interplanet Janet?"

Students have been working on the show since last fall with auditions, after-school practices and dress rehearsals, all leading up to tonight.

"This is the first time we've ever done a big production here at May Howard, so we are real excited and had a lot of fun," said music teacher Lisa Sunderland.

The School House Rock songs cover a variety of subjects including math, science, history and grammar.
