It’s a jungle out there

November 4, 2004

— Second-graders transformed the gymnasium at Lansing Elementary School into a jungle on Thursday Nov. 4.

For the past 10 weeks, Lansing music teachers Ryan Rothmeyer and Chris Goodlin prepared students to perform their musical, "It's a Jungle Out There."

Rothmeyer said he expected visitors to see and hear a "bunch of wild animals" singing a variety of styles of music.

School musicals such as "It's a Jungle Out There" allow kids who have different abilities to have the opportunity to show them off.

It also helps students achieve a sense of accomplishment, he said.

"It shows them that as second-graders they can do stuff they thought they couldn't," Rothmeyer said. "Everyone can excel in some area of music."
