Suffield Elementary School Principal Shawn Bookman, first grade teacher Teresa Cianchetti and music teacher Drexie Frech recently directed a play for students at Suffield Elementary. Students in third through fifth grades tried out for the play. The school's theme this six-week period is Tall Tales and Fairy Tales, so the play "Pecos Bill" fit in perfectly, Bookman said. The students gave up recesses and stayed after school to be a part of the play. They created props, backdrops, and costumes. They then performed the play for students and parents on March 1. The cast included Allyson Clapp, Lexie Russell, Karlie Mastran, Valerie Petrovich, Caleb Francis, MacKenzie Raines, Alexsa Hurd, Emily Eckhart, Elaina Sheeler, Brenna Chaya, Ella Leonard, Haley Hopkins.
