May Day Dance: Mission Valley Elementary

Students at the Mission Valley Elementary school Fremont, Calif. presented their annual May Day Dance, May 26. Amongst the colorful celebrations, hung a subtle gloom as this is probably the last year of this celebration. In the wake of budget cuts, students are likely to lose their physical education teachers and other senior staff at the school. The students of kindergarten and grades 4-6 presented a memorable performance at this year’s May Day Dance event. A Siliconeer photo essay.
