Third- and fourth-graders at Pleasant Gardens Elementary dazzled audience members on Tuesday, Dec. 12 with their performance of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” Third-graders acted out three scenes from the iconic story—“Christmas Eve in Whoville,” “Where Are you Christmas?” and “Christmas Morning,” while fourth-graders provided musical accompaniment by singing, “Get Christmas Started,” “Grinch Juju,” “Where are you Christmas?”, “Welcome Christmas,” and “Sorry.” Both grade levels then came together at the end for a joint closing song.
