Enjoying yesterday's beautiful spring weather, Teacher Katie and Teacher Emily (our University of Delaware music student teacher) placed melodies outside for fourth grade students to find as part of a melody scavenger hunt. As students located each melody, they labeled the solfege, sang it, and notated it!
Congratulations to Teacher Katie and all the stars of the 5th Grade Musical, Super Happy Awesome News, for an incredible performance! Thank you to the many friends and family who joined us for this special night.

First graders are engaged in their new writing unit about opinion writing. Teacher Patrick began the unit by sharing a collection of small erasers and picking the one that he thought was the best. He then gave three reasons why that one eraser, the dog, was the greatest. Once he had a turn, the kids had a turn picking one of the erasers and explaining why that was the best.
