The final curtain for 'Oz' at Newport Elementary


Pictures of "The Wizard of Oz" cast members were on display at a silent auction held as 28 years of Linda Schaack's plays came to a close.

"Thanks for the memories," was posted on the many play photographs on display last week.

Auction proceeds will be used to pay for next year's class to attend a live theater production. It will also be Schaack's final curtain when she retires after 36 years of teaching a year from now.
