CROZET, Va. (WVIR) - Students at Crozet Elementary School are combining books and music to put on creative performances.

Fourth graders created costumes, sound effects, and props to go along with their performance of The Giving Tree. The project is sponsored by the Parent Teacher Organization through a grant awarded to teachers each year.

“Ms. Brown comes up with creative ideas every year to really engage the students in the arts and her music along with Ms. Caplan our art teacher,” PTO President Shannan Lovelace said.

“I learned that you don’t have to have everything you want, you work with what you get,” fourth grader Cash Barlow said.

Lovelace says the board loves giving back to the students and teachers.

The PTO sends teachers an email inviting them to apply for the grants at the end of the school year.
