Something Big is Happening in Fifth Grade!

Last week, Ms. Eggett and 5th grade students put together the music video that will be played at their 5th grade graduation ceremony, and their choice was to redo “Something Big” by Shawn Mendes. They did a great job of being creative.

Making Music with TAPAS

This exciting annual event brings in Dave Hamilton, TAPAS teaching artist, to work with the 5th grade students on a recording project that will send them away with a CD of the material they create and record.

This year we split his residency into fall and spring sessions. You may recall that this past fall, Dave recorded the classes doing Holiday music with the hand bells that ended up as the soundtrack broadcast via radio for the Lake Julian Holiday light show and that Tammy Watford came and did a story on it for WLOS Ch. 13. Dave will return to do his final two residency days during regular 5th grade music lesson times.

Parting is such sweet sorrow...

As we wrap up another successful spring musical special thanks go out to our backstage crew! Thank you to all who stayed all weekend to help make our production of Romeo and Harriet such a big success!
