4th Graders present MISSISSIPPI….Believe It!

Poplarville's fourth grade students put on a phenomenal production of MISSISSIPPI…Believe It! last night to a packed house in PUE's Gym! It was the seventh annual production of MISSISSIPPI….Believe It!  This play, written by past and present fourth grade teachers with the help of their students, uses the MISSISSIPPI…Believe It! advertising campaign posters as a starting point for songs and skits that portray what a great state Mississippi really is.  The music teacher and the classroom teachers worked closely together to select songs that fit the needs of the individual skits.  Students informed their audience about great singers, writers, and celebrities that call our great state home.  They explained how Mississippi is famous for kitchen appliances, electronics, and automobiles.  In their preparation for this show, students gained a wealth of information about their home state.  To learn more about the posters that were used for inspiration, you can visit www.mississippibelieveit.com.  Here you can take a closer look at the ads as well as read the history behind the campaign.
