Afterschool Classroom Enrichment (ACE)

Woodbury Elementary School's spring musical was a huge success!

CLICK HERE to view photos of the performance.

The aptly titled "Rags 2 Riches" featured songs and scenes from the beloved musicals "Fiddler on the Roof" and "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying." Sponsored by IPSF and directed by Mrs. Bonnie Barlow (2010-11 Parent Volunteer of the Year and a former Woodbury parent), the musical highlighted the talent and musicality of 75 upper grade and 30 primary students as they sing, dance, act, and shine in a spectacular production created and built entirely by parent volunteers.
