The Drama Club at RCK recently presented the memorable musical “Annie,” directed by third-grade teacher Dennis Clancy. Cast and crew dedicated many hours learning songs, memorizing lines and creating the set. With more than 50 students participating in the Drama Club, two performances were necessary to accommodate all of the proud participants. In lieu of charging a admission for attending, donations were requested to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, earning a total of $450 for the charity.

“Our students did an outstanding job making this endeavor a great success,” Clancy said.

“I am so proud of these students as well as their teachers,” said Robert J. Wottawa II, the district’s director of art, ENL, music and world language.

Wottawa II, the district’s director of art, ENL, music, and world languages. “Congratulations to all of our students, their families and our teachers.
