Dear LP Families:
This was another exciting week at Laurelton-Pardee. We had visitors from the International Baccalaureate who were here to help us assess our growth with the Primary Years Program. We surely will have some great recommendations from their report.
We also finished concert season with a beautiful concert by our fifth grade chorus and senior band. Again, we owe a huge thank you to Mr. Trumpowsky and Mr. Savine for their leadership. What's more is our fourth graders are on a Field Trip to Genesee Country Museum today, AND our third graders are celebrating our second annual Culture Day with fun and educational activities throughout the day.
Finally, on Monday we held an assembly for the whole school. It featured Bush Mango Drum and Dance, which is an African drum and dance ensemble. Our students LOVED the whole thing - they learned some dance moves and even got to beat the drum. Thank you to our PTA for making this event possible.
Bush Mango Drum and Dance
One of our students takes weekly drum lessons with the members of Bush Mango! They pulled him into the show!
They do more than drum and dance.
The acrobatic dancer had many other talents.
We were led through an African dance sequence.
