There were so many school stories stuffed inside Saturday's Valley Voice that perhaps we should have named it the Student Weekly. And these are the fun stories about school that feature kids having a good time.
Reporter Lisa Leinberger talked to students at Central Valley High School about their upcoming production of "Singing in the Rain." Apparently they will actually make it rain on stage during performances. There are 75 students in the cast, not counting the orchestra.
Lisa also saw what the University High School drama department did at Chester Elementary School for Read Across America Week. The high school students performed plays based on children's books, including "Green Eggs and Ham" by Dr. Seuss and "The True Story of the three Little Pigs" by Jon Scieszka.
Correspondent Steve Christilaw had a story on the Freeman girls basketball team that he wrote as they prepared to play in the State tournament held over the weekend. They were trying to win their third state title, but unfortunately did not make it.
