Leggee students tackle music from the movies
Sometimes, the best part of a movie is its soundtrack.
Under the direction of music teacher Mary Bell, fifth-grade students from Leggee Elementary School in Huntley will perform award-winning hit songs from such classic movies as "Jaws," "Grease," "Ghostbusters," "Mission Impossible" and many more.
The "Hooray for Hollywood" concert will be held Wednesday, May 16, at 7 p.m. The concert is free and open to the public. Leggee Elementary School is located at 13723 Harmony Road, Huntley.
