Family members were invited to Harley Avenue Primary School on April 6 and 7 for a special Earth Day performance by their second-graders.

Dressed in black and white attire, he students showcased their singing skills and facts about the Earth in the school’s cafetorium for their loved ones. Music teacher Christina Long directed the show with accompanist Marge Margolf.

Songs included “It’s a Small World,” “What a Wonderful World” and “We’ve Got the Whole World.” Between each song, the students would recite poetry about keeping the world a safe and healthy place. Untraditional music props were used for a variety of songs, including old detergent bottles and cans to use as drums for a song titled, “R-E-C-Y-C-L-E.”

The students prepared for the two-day performance by creating their own covers for the show’s booklet which they handed to family members before the show took place. In addition, the students worked together to create posters inspired by the illustrations in the book “What a Wonderful World,” and raised their designs up when singing the song to conclude the show.
