We welcome Miguel to our class!

4TH GRADE MUSICAL

The 4th Grade musical, Changing Swain!, is just around the corner. This week we will begin working on the props, scenery, backdrop, and all other aspects of the play. The 4th grade classes will be divided up accordingly; Mr. Riggs-actors, Mrs. Kolodziej-artists, Mrs. Carreon-dancers, Mrs. Sullivan-stage crew/dancers. If your child is interested in being in the artist group (creating art/scenery), there was a paper sent home on Friday asking your child to draw a picture of a forty-niner (miner) panning for gold to be turned in Monday. There is much work to be done so please reassure your child that s/he can do more than one part of the play and will probably be needed to do multiple projects. The daily schedule has been adjusted below. Again, thank you for your support and your flexibility.

APEX FUN RUN IS THURSDAY

The APEX fun run fundraiser continues this week! By supporting this fundraiser you are supporting our music program and good health. The APEX program will be with our class from April 13-23. Students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on Thursday, April 23 from 1:20 pm to 2:00 pm. Students will run 30 minutes and will run an average 26-36 laps, with the maximum amount of laps being 36. Sponsors can pledge $1/lap, $2/lap, $5/lap or any flat donation. All participants will receive an access code that allows you to enter pledges online. We will also be having character lessons to learn what it means to become an Extreme Leader:
  • Find Your Strengths!
  • Be Brave!
  • Stick Together!
  • Go Big!
  • Say Thanks!
In addition, I will be providing class rewards for every $20 increment our entire class raises. Please consider reaching out to family and friends to pledge your child and I hope to see you at the Fun Run this THURSDAY!

Rihanna - Four Five Seconds ( Karaoke / Instrumental )

Four Five Seconds by Rihanna

Song 1 To the tune of Four Five Seconds by Rihanna

(Sung by Chorus)

FIRST CHORUS]

Now let’s introduce, Mr. Captain Swain

He is a little mean, you might have to walk the plank

Cause all of his anger, is taken out on us

Now we’re Four Five Seconds from leavin'

‘Cause Captain Swain is bein’ too mean

We’re just tryna make it back home in one piece, man

I swear I’d rather just swim back

Ooh back to the shore

[SECOND CHORUS]

Woke up, the air was mist, could barely see I'm positive

We heard they stole his watch

Hold him back he’s bout' to spaz

[Hook]

Now he’s Four Five Seconds from pushin’

Them all right off the Lady Wilma

Just tryna make it back to California, yeah

I swear I wish somebody would tell Swain

There’s more gold out there

Song fades…

Tangled - When Will My Life Begin (Karaoke Version)

When Will My Life Begin

Song 3 to the tune of When Will My Life Begin by Mandy Moore from Tangled

(Sung by chorus)

Dancers with octopus masks and tentacles

7 AM, the usual morning hunger:

Stomping around and kicking up all the sand,

Swimming and squirting, and swirling, I feel so grumpy

Yelling at others til,

It's like 7:15.

And so I'll go to school or maybe back to bed

I wish I had some toast maybe with jam to spread

I wish someone would come, and cook and basically

Just wonder who will bring me my bread?

Now it is lunch I still haven’t had my breakfast

All day on edge, I’m starting to feel the stress

Reading and Math, my energy’s quickly fading

Social Studies,

Science,

Take a walk, where’s my lunch?

And I'll go buy candy its all that I can spare

I'll read my books again, the words are there somewhere.

And now my stomach aches, aches and aches some more

Stuck doin the same things I’ve always done.

And I'll keep wonderin' and wonderin', and wonderin', and wonderin'

Is there a better way?

(Sung by mermaid trio)

If you ate 3 meals, fruits and veggies

You’d have more fun and so would your peers.

You’ll be okay, at least now you know,

Respect your body, it’s the only way you’ll grow

end of lyrics

Frozen - Let It Go (Idina Menzel) (Karaoke Version)

Let It Go

Song 4: to the tune of Let it Go from Frozen

(Sung by Actors and Chorus)

(Captain Swain Sings)

The wind blows cold

on the ship tonight

Not a passenger to be seen

A kingdom of isolation

And it looks like I'm the cap-teen

The wind is howling

like this angry storm inside

Couldn't keep it in

Heaven knows I tried

Don't let them in

Don't let them see

Be the stern captain you always have to be

Conceal,

don't feel,

don't let them know...

Well now they know!

(Praiseworthy sings)

Let it go

Let it go

Can't hold it back anymore

Let it go

Let it go

Turn away and slam the door!

You do care

What their going to say

Let the winds rage on

The salty air never bothered you anyway

(Mountain Jim)

It's hard to find some distance

When this ship seems so small

And the anger that once controlled you

Can't get to you at all!

(The Shipmates)

It's time to see

What he will do

To test our limits and to break you

Go right, go left

There's always rules you see

(Jackie)

Let it go

Let it go

You can be a great guy

Let it go

Let it go

Stop making people cry!
We're making a stand and we want to say...

(Dr. Buckbee)

My goodness Captain everyone is scared to make a sound

Their soul's are spiraling in salty fractals from your growl

And one thought crystallizes like an ocean blast

You can move forward from this

The past is in the past!

(Captain Swain)

Let it go

Let it go

And I'll raise with the break of dawn

Let it go

Let it go

That "perfect" captain is gone

I guess I care

And I want them to say

Look at Captain Swain

Now there's someone I would follow any day
