Month in Review


December was a fun filled month! We really enjoyed our visit to Rockynol and spending time with the residents. Our students baked over 100 cookies to share! They enjoyed the performance from the advanced orchestra, singing carols and chatting with the residents. We also enjoyed playing Christmas bingo with the advanced choir students. We learned about customs and traditions. We enjoyed trying out a few ourselves including making and eating latkes, baking cookies and playing the dreidel game. We also enjoyed a hot chocolate bar and holiday movies. The students really enjoyed all the crafts we made and they learned that giving gifts is just as fun as receiving them! We also made gifts to share with our friends and family! Students also learned about how to be a good communicator.

Reach Out and Dance

Students are busy preparing for the show in May. They have learned the terms: sixth position, hit the deck, matrix, releve and reverence. They had done an amazing job learning the steps and how to enter and exit the stage. Each week the students look forward to dance class and seeing their dance teachers and Mr. Mark!
