Miss Nelson is Missing

Miss Nelson’s class is the worst-behaved in the whole school. One day, Miss Nelson does not come to school, and the class gets Viola Swamp, a scary substitute who assigns homework from hell. The search is on for Miss Nelson. Hopefully the students of Room 207 will find her before it’s too late – for them!
James and the Giant Peach
Wednesday, April 19, 9:15 and 10:45
Thursday, April 20,
Friday, April 21,
A delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure! When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach… and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach – among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities – but, after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks, and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family.
