The fifth-grade students of Katie Vannoy, Lindsay Sherer and Amanda Smith retold the adventures of the discovery of the Americas through song last week as they put on the show, "European Explorers in the New World."

Students dressed in costume as well-known historical figures such as Christopher Columbus and Amerigo Vespucci and sang about the Northwest Passage, the germs that decimated the natives in the new world and the desire to just sail west.

Students in the production included, in order of appearance, Julia Jarrett, Evey Stockman, Cecilia Knapp, Kelsi Jones, Karrington Rivers, Alice Handmacher, Lily Grace Hooper, Ethan Dorta, Abby Swearengin, Briella Holdsambeck, Ben Doucet, Jay Hawley, Jack Nelson, Addison Wagner, Harper Nelson, Claire Lambert, Matthew Morefield, Wynter Marlow, Blakeley Anthony, Kaiden Chartier, Joaquin Gonzalez, Ben King, Trey Aylward, Easton Fields, Ansley Castlen, Ayden Ingersoll, Bennett Williams, Brady Godwin, Bryce Melton, Jackson Goldsberry, Benton Vance, Connor Burke, Alex Diaz-Hernandez, Wyatt Guilfoyle, Tate Knapp, Isabella Martinez, Audrey Faust, Grey Miller, Connor Rockwell and Olivia Wikle.

The chorus was composed of Jack Blair, Carter Barham, Lilah Borst, Connor Buchanan, Fisher Cameron, McCarty Cannon, Eli Carroll, Jaxon Chapp, Maze Garcia, Zane Hall, Abel Hastings, Ellee Jarvis, Tyler Kirk, Cason Kramer, Tony Martinez, William Parker, Parker Phillips, Wyatt Richeson, Connor Rockwell, Brady Shows, Elly Wehrman and Emma Wacks.

Blake Phelps served as sound tech and Jackson Daugherty worked the curtains.
