Greetings, and Happy March! There are signs of the weather changing, the snow melting, and Spring seems to be on it's way! How many days until Spring Break? :-)

And now... the Music news!
We have completed our unit on World Music drumming, and the drums have moved on to Dryden school, where they will be enjoyed by the always exciting Mr. Deptula and the Dryden students. We will miss the fun rhythm and concentration games we did while the drums were with us, but we probably won't miss the noise!
This week, third and fourth grade classes are focusing on some Irish music to get ready for St. Patrick's day, while first graders are studying "Peter and The Wolf", and fifth grade students are working on music for their April 24th concert. Second grade students recently read and sang along with a short musical "The Bremen Town Musicians."
Act Previews for our Variety Show are this Thursday after school. We are looking forward to some great acts!
