Weekly Wrap Up

Benedict A. Cucinella School 3/25/2022

Week 29

As we close out the week and edge closer to the end of March, our spring break is upon us. You could definitely tell that Spring was in the air this week. This week brought our students back into the cafeteria for lunches for the first time all year. For our Kindergarten and first grade students, this was a new experience for them, while our older students were happy to get back to normal!

Our fifth grade instrumental students played a live performance for students in grades 3-5, and it was spectacular. The students have come far with their musical talents under the direction of Ms. English. More musical performances are coming our way as the year moves on!

On Thursday, our third graders welcomed their parents to school to celebrate World Cultures' Day. The third grade students each chose a country to research. Then they created a presentation of what they learned and were able to share their information with their parents and teachers. Thank you to our 3rd grade teachers for organizing the event, and to all of our parents who joined us. It was a great day for all!
