Elementary Students Perform Fairy Tale Classics

Leah Weissinger's first-graders performed a series of three classic fairy tales on in the Babylon Elementary School gymnasium to a packed house of parents, teachers and school administrators.
The students opened with the time-honored fable "The Tortoise and the Hare" and followed with spectacular renditions of "The Three Billy Goats Gruff" and "The Three Little Pigs." According to Babylon Elementary School Principal Dana Basile, these performances have become an annual tradition at the school thanks to Ms. Weissinger's hard work and dedication. She added that the event helps students develop key skills in public speaking and English Language Arts fundamentals, in addition to boosting self-confidence.
