“Little friends may prove to be GREAT friends”; “Slow and steady wins the race”; “There is time for work and time for play”; and “Misfortune tests the sincerity of friends”. These are lessons that all children, young and old, should learn in life. They are also the morals from some of our favorite fables by Aesop: The Lion and the Mouse, The Tortoise and the Hare, The Ant and the Grasshopper, and Two Friends and the Bear.
Vinalhaven School Enrichment is dedicated to enriching Vinalhaven School’s curriculum, and on May 3rd, enrich they did – by bringing actors from The Theater at Monmouth to Vinalhaven to present Aesop’s Guide to Friendship. Vinalhaven students recite the Code of Honor daily: “I care enough to be kind. I care enough to be respectful. I care enough to be responsible. I care enough to be honest. I care enough to be fair.” Through Aesop’s Guide to Friendship, these words were brought to life.
After their performance, the three wonderful actors stayed to lead lively theater games with grades Pre-K – 7, which was an added treat.
