Professor Rock has disappeared! His loyal students go on a quest to find him, joined by the (mostly unhelpful) Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Along the way, they meet volcanoes, seashores, canyons, dinosaurs, suspicious ferns, and even Snow White -- and learn about the earth's geological cycles and features as they go. Who's behind Professor Rock's disappearance, and will he ever be found? (Hint: Don't trust those ferns who represent the interests of fossil fuels!)
On Friday, March 31, Birches students performed their third annual musical under the brilliant direction of music and drama specialist Laura Bak. Everyone participated, including the kindergartners and first graders who were fearsome dinosaurs. Below, three kindergartners reprise their roles after the play.
