Heart of the Lakes Elementary School’s kindergarten, first and third grade classes recently attended a production of “Junie B. Jones” at the Holmes Theater in Detroit Lakes. 
Junie B. Jones is a popular children’s book series and the students were able to see her character come to life on stage. The activity was designed to get kids even more excited about reading and listening to Junie B. stories at school. One student excitedly said after the show, “Junie B. Jones was so funny!”The kids were able to sing catchy songs that encourage them to write about their life in a journal. The event was sponsored by the school district’s 549 Foundation.
