Carlisle School’s theatre troupe, ZipZapZop, performed an entertaining and engaging Dr. Seuss-inspired musical for over 150 pre-K students at Preschool in the Galleries on March 8.
Leading students into the room through a colorful tunnel of linked arms and jazz hands, Carlisle School’s Zip Zap Zop theater troupe kicked off the first of two Preschool in the Galleries performances with high energy and a welcoming spirit. Young students were mesmerized by a collection of fun games, music and spectacle; all serving a theme of acceptance, kindness and love.
After the first performance, preschool students from First Presbyterian Weekday School went outside and assisted C.D. Prillaman of Prillaman Landscape Dimensions in planting the first garden bed on Piedmont Arts’ new Pollinator Path. Equipped with trowels, mulch and fertilizer, the children dug holes with Prillaman and planted black-eyed susans, dogwoods, and other small shrubs. Prillaman tasked them with visiting the Pollinator Path in the coming weeks to see if the plants as they begin to grow. This is the first of many garden beds that will surround the Pollinator Path, a project partially funded by a Project Hope grant from the Harvest Foundation.
