"Thank you so much for donating to Class Acts. We really enjoyed learning more about history. It was exciting to watch the show and learn."
Alonda, 3rd Grade Student, Midway Elementary School
"The play was just like a story I read in 1st grade last year and I loved it"
Ryleigh Dale, Student, Clement Elementary School
"Class acts provides students with the opportunity to experience the magic of a live performance. The shows and performers encourage creativity among the students and most shows allow the students to take an active part in the performance. Class Acts offers a variety of shows. I have seen students use that knowledge gained from a performance to make connections with related material (or other subjects) in the classroom"
Rita Wilson, Plainview Elementary School
"Thank you for organizing yearly performances for the school children of Sampson County, and especially for including Harrells Christian Academy. The cultural arts performances are always entertaining and go along with our curriculum. We value these opportunities and feel that it helps children learn outside of the classroom and appreciate differences in culture, art, and music in the world around them."
Beth Griffin, Harrells Christian Academy
"The Class Acts experience was exciting and interactive. Students were able to perform with the actor, Mike Wiley (One Noble Journey). It is important to have events like this so we can learn important events in history in an interesting way.
Marlee, 5th Grade Student, Sunset Avenue School
