Ms. Felicia Woodruff Receives WHNT's "Tools For Schools" Nomination From Foster Grandmother

Ms. Joie Hannay works as a foster grandmother at Austinville each day in Ms. Woodruff's first grade. She sees first hand how a few extra dollars could help in the classroom. This month, Ms. Joie nominated Ms. Woodruff for WHNT's "Tools for Schools" award.

Ms. Joie says, " I am inspired daily by her enthusiasm, compassion and the joy she brings to her teaching. Ms. Woodruff is always upbeat and her primary focus is always to inspire her first graders to learn and do more."

WHNT's crew paid a visit to Austinville to film the award presentation which will air on the 18th. These two ladies always wear a smile and are assets to the Austinville staff.

The Nutcracker Parachute

The Nutcracker is a Christmas ballet. In Music, the students are using the parachute and moving to the Trepak, or Russian Dance from the Nutcracker. Dr. G's instruction has taught students that the form of this music is AABA. Students have performed specific movements using the parachute every time they hear the music repeat. And as you can see from their smiles, they are enjoying it.
