The sounds of class children’s songs could be heard from all around the Madison Academy on Friday, May 6. The students of Madison Academy danced to songs such as “Lean on Me,” “The More We Get Together,” and “I’ll Be There For You.” The winners of the May Fete Queen and King were also announced during the presentation. This year’s May Fete Queen and King were Alexis Bowen (Queen) and Dalton Browning (King).
The presentation began, as it does every year, with the dance around the Maypole and the coronation of the May Fete Court. Following this the group sang the intro song, “You’ve Got A Friend In Me.” The 3K students then performed “Peanut Butter And Jelly Time.” This was followed by the fourth grade singing, “Thank You For Being A Friend.” The second graders then sang, “We Go Together.” The fifth grade group did an excellent performance of, “Lean On Me.” 5K then followed with, “The More We Get Together.” Following that song were the third graders singing, “Jesus Is A Friend Of Mine.” 4K then sang “Waka Waka.” The seventh graders performed, “Ill Be There For You.” The final song was sang by the first graders, they sang, “The Friendship Train.” The entire performance was narrated by the eighth graders.
