Whether you are thinking of the main characters from The Lord of the Rings, Trolls, A Wrinkle in Time, The Wizard of Oz and many other protagonist and antagonist who have been created by amazing minds.

This weekend our students will be sharing some of their favorite heroes like Spider Man, Super Mario, Paw Patrol, James Bond. A vocal student will be singing a fun son
