Colonial Concert

November 23rd, 2011 · No Comments

What a great way to head into the Holiday Weekend.  A performance filled with song and dance by our grade three students this morning.  With hundreds watching, the students demonstrated what they had been working on this Fall in music class with Mrs Lang.

The audio clip below gives you a taste of this morning’s music.

880 Books and counting

Yikes. . . my dream nightmare of having to do a ballet performance in front of the whole school (with tutu!!) is about to become  a reality.  Our students have raised close to the 1,000 books necessary.  This “artistic” performance will  be taking place December 20th.  The books are all going to a kids charity.  I better start practicing. .  . .

Hip Hop in Gym

April 7th, 2010 · 1 Comment

This week we began our Hip Hop dance unit in gym class.  Nancy Griffiths, a Lane parent and instructor at Kamate Fitness led the kids through funky moves as the sounds of  Top 40 music and “Thriller” by Michael Jackson echoed through the gym. Although Nancy isn’t offering a student class through the Rec Dept this Spring, there will be a kids class in the Fall.  However for you adults out there, Nancy passed this on to me:

Mrs. Griffiths’ modern and innovative weight lifting and dance classes for adults are now being offered at the Bedford Rec Department this spring.  Classes start April 10th.”

We thank Mrs. Griffiths for volunteering her time to come in this week to provide every class the opportunity to try this exciting program.
