West Elementary teachers and staff turned the school into a Disney paradise on March 6 for Disney Fairytale Day.
Every hall was decorated from top to bottom with a Disney theme including Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Mulan, Moana and Sofia the First.
Students dressed as Disney characters, and a prince and princess from every grade level was selected to parade the halls, with the kindergarten prince and princess riding in a carriage made by Home Depot.
Twenty real-life, Disney prince and princesses from Princesses with a Purpose joined the kids, including Cinderella, Belle, Sleeping Beauty and Ariel.
After the parade, princesses from Princesses with a Purpose as well as students from the Brewer High School Theatre Department provided character guidance lessons in the classrooms. And, the students participated in instructional activities tied to their hallway's Disney theme.
Fourth grade students in the Peter Pan hall created an expository explaining why a student would never want to grow up.
Third grade students in the Alice in Wonderland hall played a multiplication card game and participated in data analysis and graphing activities related to the Queen of Hearts.
Second graders in the Frozen hall discussed Arctic habitat in science; and in writing, they used Olaf’s motto, “some people are worth melting for,” to write about ways to be kind and warm people’s hearts.
