Anthony Gannone, a fifth grade student at Second Street School, told parents, teachers and classmates about his project on “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” during the school’s Student Showcase on Thursday night.
Anthony’s project, which was a diorama of a special room at the school Harry Potter attends, was part of his Living Literature class at the school. He and the rest of Second Street’s fifth through eighth grade students showed works that they created during the school’s elective classes.
Students performed music, solved math problems, showed off robots and more for families and friends. Anthony said it took several days to finish the project.
“Harry, Ron and Hermione (characters in the book) are breaking the rules and going out of their way to teach students to defend themselves,” he said about why he enjoyed the book.
Assistant Principal Randy Adams thanked those who came to the Student Showcase.
“Tonight, you’re not just here supporting your child, but you are here supporting all of our students,” he said.
