Work on the show began in January and continued until just minutes before the guests arrived. Students and staff spent the last week turning the building into a jungle including creating a walk through cave with cave drawings and a waterfall. The rest of the building looked like a scene from "Jumanji." In the middle of all of this, each student created their own jungle-themed art piece that was displayed throughout the hallways.
As a school leader, I am so proud of the work put in by the students and staff here at Northside Primary. Honestly, the only thing I did was set up a couple of tables and try to document the work on camera. Throughout this process, I've seen students actively engaged, excited, and ready to show the over 100 parents who came the work they did. It was an amazing night at Northside.
