    During the month of April, Hodgenville Elementary School fourth-graders combined music, art, media and physical education to present Greek Mythological Allusions, a series of skits based on Greek mythology. The project not only provided students a unique, hands-on opportunity to learn about Greek mythology – a required curriculum component – but also an opportunity to build performance skills and create special memories.
