Shakespeare Program

Since 1998 staff, parents, and students have participated in an annual Shakespeare production. The production is a three month process producing dazzling results! Each year our students have delighted the community with two evening performances plus the annual evening dinner theatre, a fundraising event sponsored by the Spencer Valley Educational Association.
