In November 2013, Massachusetts students performed songs from The Dragons Are Singing Tonight at a community-building K-8 assembly. Each grade represented a dragon from a different culture and sang a song from the musical. The faculty, staff, and administration, representing three additional dragons, also sang a Dragons song, and the entire community sang the finale, The Dragons Are Singing Tonight. All were welcomed to “K-8’s DRAGON REALM, where we are ALL DIFFERENT, AND UNITED.”
4th and 5th graders sang I Am Boom!
1st graders decorated the room with dragon illustrations.
2nd graders sang I Am My Master’s Dragon.
6th graders sang Nasty Little Dragonsong.
