Sideways Stories From Wayside School - March 2nd-3rd
You can imagine the confusion at Wayside School when the builder made a terrible mistake. Instead of building 30 classrooms side by side, he built them one on top of another. Perhaps this accounts for all the wacky goings-on in Mrs. Jewls' class where children are being turned into apples or dead rats are wearing raincoats, and little girls are trying to sell their toes. Based on the best-selling book series by Louis Sachar, these Sideways Stories are a ridiculously good time for the entire family.

Join Westville Elementary for their first Annual Spring Bazaar! There will be vendors, crafters, food, raffles, and more!
