Albany- Nearly 50 Lamar Reese 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders along with faculty and staff participated in the stage play "Annie."

The students have been learning their lines and songs since December.

"I've learned that you can do anything that you want to, and that you can go as far as a you can by doing things that people teach you, and that you're just a special person," says Hasanati Williams, who plays the starring role of Annie.

Principal Dr. Valerie Thomas says she hopes the production will encourage other parents to take advantage of the opportunity to enroll their children in Lamar Reese School of the Arts.

Lamar Reese is a magnet school that focuses on Fine Arts education. Thomas says there are still open slots for any parents who wish to enroll their children at the school for the 2004-2005 year.

Students do not have to be zoned for Lamar Reese to attend the school, but will need to stop by the school office Monday through Friday to pick up an application.
