12A Wednesday, Dec. 3, 2014 Feather River Bulletin Plumas Charter School's Alayssa Mercer performs the classic Woodie Guthrie song "This Land is Your Land" during the school's fall production Nov. 21. Phot O by Maggie Hennessy Plumas Charter hosts fall production On Friday, Nov. 21, Plumas Charter School's Quincy site multipurpose room was bursting at the seams with parents, family members and friends who came to be entertained at the annual Fall Showcase. The theme this year was Solving Problems -- Making a Difference. Transitional kindergarten through fifth-grade students shared with the audience the many problem-solving strategies they have learned. The night began with a pizza and lemonade fundraiser to support the arts and drama programs, and continued with a baked goods sale that went through the night to support the field trip program. More than 60 parents arrived early to attend a parent meeting led by Executive Director Taletha Washburn to discuss Common Core implementation, the school's local control accountability plan and the need for continued parent involvement. The program began with freshman Alayssa Mercer performing "This Land is Your Land" by Woody Guthrie. After opening with a solo chorus and first verse, over 90 students joined Mercer for the remainder of the song. Kindergarten students then performed a version of "The Little Red Hen" to promote the importance of teamwork, friendship and sharing. The first- and second-grade class followed with a theatrical performance of the book "The Crayon Box That Talked" by Shane DeRolf. The class reinforced how unique individuals can come together to complete a beautiful picture. The second- and third-grade class performed its own adaptation of "The Three Billy Goats Gruff' by Paul Galdone. It was the littlest of the animals that made the most impact in this version. They were able to stand up to the trolls and show that working together and sharing is a much better choice. The fourth- and fifth-grade class presented Dr. Seuss' tale "The Sneetches." The performers demonstrated to the audience that Sylvester McMonkey McBean was wrong in this story -- Sneetches can learn from their mistakes. The Plumas Charter School ensemble closed the evening with David Weiss and Bob Thiele's "What a Wonderful World." Close to 100 students shared this song and message through sign language. The message? It certainly is a wonderful world, so be kind to one another. First- and second-grade students dress up as crayons while performing "The Crayon Box That Talked."
