Second graders at Jeremiah Gray-Edison Elementary re-enacted the Underground Railroad as escaping slaves.  As “slaves”, they ran through the swamp, grave yard, crossed the river, hid in safe houses and finally reached freedom!  Along the way, the “slaves” avoided being caught from slave catchers.  Mrs. Francette Calvin portrayed Harriet Tubman and 4th grade actors pretended to be slave catchers, safe house owners, ghosts, and sympathizers.
