Setauket Elementary School first-graders in Eileen Biamonte took to the stage this spring to perform the comical show “Goin’ Buggy.”

During the show, each student took on the role of a different insect or bug and implored the audience to understand why they were underappreciated in the world. Ladybugs, bumblebees and lightning bugs joined forces and marched to Washington, D.C. to fight for their rights. The show ended with insects earning a holiday in their name.

The student’s participation in the performance enabled them to gain a deeper understanding of civil rights and strengthen their public speaking skills.
