Walnut Grove Students Vacation on Mars Patch

Teachers, parents and students cultivate creativity, resources and energy to present two co-curricular musical plays per year, including this fall’s “Vacation On Mars.”
Scientists may be years away from placing humans on the surface of Mars.
But Pleasanton’s Walnut Grove Elementary School music specialist Sharolyn Borris and her students this week beat scientists to the punch.
When she began working as music specialist at Walnut Grove nine years ago, the school’s PTA gave her the opportunity to run two annual musical plays on a parent-funded stipend.
“It’s become huge,” said Borris. “We had 115 second and third graders in this show.”
