Islip Students Share Talents at Barnes & Noble Celebration thumbnail165764

Performing arts students from the high school and middle school journeyed to Barnes & Noble in Bay Shore on March 2 as part of the school district’s celebration at the store. The chamber orchestras of both schools performed music under the direction of Zachary Butterfield. Cast members from the middle school’s musical, “Frozen, Jr.,” sang songs from their recent production of that play. Their performance, directed by Allison Jeanes, complemented a store display of books and other items devoted to “Frozen.” The middle schoolers also performed a dramatization of the children’s picture book “The Day the Crayons Quit.”  

“Our students were happy to share their musical and dramatic talents in this celebration of literacy,” said Dr. Jeff S. Dailey, the district’s interim director of fine and performing arts.
