On October 6, fifth grade students and families participated in the annual mystery dinner theatre as a culminating activity for a mystery genre unit. Every year fifth grade teachers along with the media coordinator write and perform an original mystery skit.  As participants enjoy a three-course dinner, students are encouraged to identify motive and clues to solve the mystery. Finally students can share their own mystery books, which they have previously written in class.  This year’s performance was titled “The Case of the Missing Coconut Pie” with the cast of Gilligan’s Island.
