Pine Forest Elementary's 14th Annual Art and Science Show is May 3

Tradition will shine brightly at Pine Forest School of the Performing/Visual Arts this week as they present their 14th annual Second Grade Art and Science Show on Thursday, May 3.

“The show is a kind of rite of passage at Pine Forest,” said Laura Hammock, the second grade teacher who wrote and choreographed this year’s show. “We put it on for many reasons: to introduce the students to being part of a production; to build confidence and the will to perform; and to educate students about important subjects through the arts.”

This year’s show, The Science Machine, will feature three “mini scientists” as they build a time machine and travel throughout the universe to learn about dinosaurs, the water cycle, the ocean, space and the rainforest. This art and science-infused show encompasses singing, dancing and acting from the second grade students.

“It took a dedicated team to produce,” Hammock said. “From the other second grade teachers, Linda Behner, Kim Baumgardner, Lauren Davis and Kim Drawdy to our dance, music, and drama teachers: Debbie Rankin, Terri Wester and Sam Fisher. We all help each other and the students.”

There will be three free performances open to the public on Thursday, May 3: 10 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Donations will be accepted and concessions will be sold to help offset the cost of the production.

Pine Forest is located at 3929 Grant Road in San Marco. Zip code 32207. For information contact Laura Hammock at 904.346.5600 ext. 209 or pateyl@duvalschools.org.
