The beautiful voices of our children could be heard throughout the building at last week's spring concert. For the first time ever, Mrs. Drew coordinated a concert for our youngest students and they did an amazing job!

The evening began with the first and second grade classes. They sang three songs, including an American Folk tune called "Fiddle De Dee," and performed the dance "King and Queens," an English Contra dance. The kindergarten students looked amazing as they sported hand-made duck hats for their rendition of "Six Little Ducks." They then used their hats as boats when they sang the Native American Lullaby, "Little Papoose."

This year, after much discussion, the students sang two contemporary pop songs—"Roar" by Katy Perry and "Fireflies" by Owl City. When the lights went out and the disco ball started to move, one could feel the excitement in the gymnasium. It was a truly beautiful sight to see the lights dancing on the walls like fireflies. It was a spectacular evening!

On Wednesday night, we celebrated our Everybody Wins students and mentors at a pot luck literacy event. After a delicious meal, Dr. Donna Coch, a professor at Dartmouth, taught an interactive workshop on reading, language and the brain. According to the students, the best part was seeing the actual brains of rats, sheep and humans!
