Macbeth – The Scottish play lives on at MDJH!

As a part of a drama unit in English Language Arts, the grade 7-2 class decided to present an abridged version of Macbeth. They received the scripts, reviewed them, auditioned, and then practiced it all over and over. Eventually, they performed for Ms. Pike, Ms. Hardy, Ms. Watton, and Ms. Ward. Everyone had a role whether it was on the stage or behind the scenes. It was a great way to end classes on April 18! A wonderful time was had by all. Mrs. Mills and Ms. Bartlett were very proud of all their students.
