George Washington, Ben Franklin, Betsy Ross and Brown Betty, Paul Revere’s horse, were all there as well as the fifth-graders to performed “The Voice of Revolution” March 30.

“The program is based on the American Revolution and the script contains factual information,” said Meri Humphrey, music teacher.

The students studied the Revolution in their social studies class and the students in the Community Education after-school program created the props, she said.

Many of the after-school group were given speaking parts, small group and solo numbers, played instruments and designed a PowerPoint presentation, Humphrey said.
