String lessons for grades 6-7-8 are not happening this morning. But beginning violin and cello lessons are on at 1:00 and 1:30 this afternoon.

Beginning Jr. Band lessons for trumpets, drums, trombone, and clarinets are on for tomorrow and Friday, but full Jr. Band is not rehearsing tomorrow until we all have had the chance to work on the new music.


It will be warm enough to head outside today.  Dressing to stay dry after the snowfall will be the challenge for recess.  Unfortunately, the snow is not deep enough for snow tubing.  We needed a couple more inches.

Team USA Movement Project
Team USA students are learning about movement for their thematic unit. They are learning about immigration, emigration, and why people move from place to place. Each student is working on a project to explain how the United States has become the multicultural country it is today. Some topics include: the Great Migration, the African slave trade, and westward expansion. When they finish, students will present their projects to their teachers and classmates to share their learning with others. Thursday 1-12-2017.  LINK TO PICTURES
