It was a magical day as kings and queens, princes and princesses all appeared at Accompsett Elementary for its annual second-grade Fairy Tale Ball on April 12.

The ball is the culminating activity for the second-grade classes in their reading and writing units on the fairy tale genre. Dressed as their favorite fairy tale characters, the students entered the gym in a royal procession. After a dance performance with their partners, all the classes sang the “Cinderella Rap,” “Once Upon a Time” and “Anything Can Happen.”

Each class then took to the stage for a reading of a classic tale including “The Princess and the Pea,” “The Three Bears,” “The Three Little Pigs” and “Little Red Riding Hood.” Attendees were then invited back to the classrooms for a royal feast.
