First grade students at St. John the Evangelist School in Attleboro presented the annual All Saints Day Program to fellow students, family and friends. Each students chose a saint to represent, dressed like that saint and gave a one-minute explanation about the saint. The students each wrote and memorized their lines. The class also sang "As the Saints Go Marching In". According to Mrs. MaryBeth Barken, first grade teacher, "It was a great opportunity for the children to get up in front of their peers and speak publicly about something so special to them!"
