Hopkins School 5th graders perform Lewis and Clark

The 5th graders at Hopkins School recently performed the play "Lewis and Clark". The play, which has been performed by Hopkins students for the past eight years, centers around the adventures of the famous frontiersmen as they explore the West. Besides the title characters, many other historical faces shared the stage as well. The kids spent about two months ahead of time rehearsing for the big day, and received many cheers from their parents.
