Bayview Book Club Performs ‘Chrysanthemum’


The Bayview Family Book Club performed a pantomime production of “Chrysanthemum,” by Kevin Henkes, as part of the school’s Parent University. The theme of the night was celebrating who we are and the performance was done in both English and Spanish. Lauren Quezada, the lead character, ended the evening with an amazing rendition of “This is Me.”

At the end of the show, students joined in on the fun by coming up to the stage wearing their “This is Me” t-shirts. After the performance, students were able to choose from over 600 books donated by the Book Fairies. Students were given an English language arts activity to do at home and when completed they will receive a copy of the book, “Chrysanthemum,” which has been donated by the PTA.
