Westgate first grade enjoys Peter Rabbit.

“Riverside Children’s Theater On the Go came to West Gate K-8 to perform for First Grade.  Students were enthralled with The Tale of Peter Rabbit. There was, singing, tap dancing, fun and adventure
in this classic tale. The first graders loved the characters and the humor throughout the show. Students compared the play to the original Book written by Beatrix Potter and wrote opinion papers to tell
which version of the story they liked best. Riverside Children’s Theater did a fabulous job! The First Graders at West Gate K-8 hope to see them again soon!”
