This week parents if you do not know was Artist in residence week. It was a week of the kids doing a lot of activities that the students otherwise would not be participating in. There was PE overseen by Mr and Mrs Kruse. There was a choir that came in and sang to the kids as well as played instruments. Lots of art projects, that the kids did with the art teacher that came, as well as many fun activities in the classrooms. The kids really seemed to enjoy all of the creativity!
The absolute highlight is Kathy Thayer-Smith, the students music teacher that retired last year, came back and taught each class a song to perform Friday. It was great! The kids were amazing! They sang loud and sounded great! Some classes even performed short Christmas skits while singing. It was so neat to see the kids smiling and having so much fun.
Thank you to Ms. Stephens and those that participated in putting this week together- What a treat for the students and parents! We hope this may continue for next year.
Have a Merry Christmas!
