It's Good to Be Back!

I am so glad to be back at school and working with the students and staff of Crozet!
I missed everyone while recovering from foot surgery. Thank you to all students and staff for such a warm welcome back!

First Grade Folk Dancing

Our first grade students are learning various folk dances during music class. These dances have been chosen to specifically honor our students' family heritage and ancestry. This week, we performed a folk dance from England: Yankee Doodle. Next week, we will perform a Russian folk dance. Our students enjoy being physically active while learning the heritage and ancestry of our classmates. In addition, our folk dancing supports the first grade classroom curriculum as students work on family heritage projects in the regular classroom as part of our Design 2015 school project.
