Dressed as their favorite characters, the second-graders at Dogwood Elementary School celebrated their literacy skills with a Fairy Tale Ball on May 9.

Kings, queens, princes and princesses joined many of the famous characters found in some of the classic tales. As a culminating activity to their fairy tale unit, the students presented their knowledge of the stories to invited guests in the school’s cafeteria.

Following their grand entrance, each class gathered on the stage to present the three popular tales of “Little Red Riding Hood,” “The Three Little Pigs” and “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.” The second-grade teachers, along with Dogwood Elementary Principal Renee Carpenter, also dressed the part of notable characters. In between each of the class performances, the students sang and danced for the audience.

Invited guests to the Fairy Tale Ball were treated to a royal feast back in the classrooms after the characters made their grand exit.
