For more than 30 years, Japhet School’s preschool through 8th grade students have enjoyed performing on stage in our lively spring musicals. This year, due to social distancing, Japhet’s long-standing tradition is presented in a new form — that of a delightful and collaborative, original story written and illustrated by our students titled Across the Distance.
We invite you to explore the world of Marshall and Lucy and appreciate the depth of their relationship and their ability to connect with each other during some challenging times. Students developed Marshall and Lucy with character in mind … our mission in action!
The common thread between our stage productions and this book is that every student is represented and has a voice. This is an outstanding example of the desire to continue a tradition under difficult circumstances and finding a delightful manner in which to accomplish it. The result is a joyful journey in book form that will bring you happiness, a respect for friendship, and appreciation for the abilities of our students. Happy page-turning!
