Your Weekly Update from Johnson Elementary School
Dear Johnson Families,
A special note of thanks to Julie Georgules from our Jonson PTO Cultural Arts Committee for scheduling last Friday’s performance by the “Natick Community Drum Circle.” It was another successful performance! Our students had a lot of fun trying out some of the different percussion instruments. And there were lots of great dance moves along with high energy engagement. Checkout the photos below!
On Tuesday, Vin Tingley and Kenny Phillips from the Rotary Club of Natick visited our third grade classrooms. Each Johnson third grader received the wonderful gift of a dictionary. We thank the Rotary Club of Natick for providing for their generous funding and for maintaining this special tradition (See photo below).
Our third and fourth grade students, “The JES Peacemakers” will be performing in Downtown Natick next Friday morning, December 23rd. Details with specific times to follow. We hope you will be able to join us!
THANK YOU Johnson PTO/Cultural Arts for the Natick Drum Circle Assembly!
