Childsplay performs in Goodyear
The city of Goodyear presents a performance of With Two Wings by award-winning theater company Childsplay at 7 p.m. at Estrella Foothills High School, 13033 S. Estrella Parkway. The play is free and suggested for children in grades one through six. With Two Wings shows us a fantastical world of winged creatures through the eyes of Lyf, a young boy who has grown up sheltered from the outside by his differently abled parents. Safe in their nest, protected by a series of strict rules, Lyf has never even thought about trying to fly. Childsplay is a Tempe- based, professional nonprofit theater company of adult actors performing for young audiences and families. The performance is funded by a grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts.

AS A WAY OF CELEBRATING EARTH DAY, children in teacher Stephanie Markley’s fi rst-grade class at Sundance Elementary School created “garbage monsters” from items they found in their household trash. The idea was inspired by the children’s book The Garbage Monster by Joni Sensel. After reading the book, the pupils were asked to name the monster, tell two ways the monster helps the earth and give ideas about how parts of the monsters can be reused.
