The Screen-Free Week Challenge!

Hello, everyone!
This week I am going to try the Screen-Free Week Challenge,
and I am going to challenge you all to try and do the same!
Are you with me?
My Screen-Free Week Challenge will start tomorrow, Sunday,
April 28th, and go the whole week until Saturday, May 4th!
Will you try it, too?
Since I won't be on my computer at all, or checking e-mail,
I am going to post everything I can think of for the week:
Looking forward to seeing all of my choruses at both schools!
We have a Spring Chorus Concert coming up in just 6 weeks!

I will be seeing all of my Davis Thayer students today! They
might be surprised to see both my computer and Smart Board
off! 4th Grade needs to remember their recorders- for the very
last time this year! Next week is our Recorder Karate test!!!
Happy Month of May! ;-)

Jefferson Staff Meeting and Staff Picture!
Jefferson 4th Grade students- you also must remember to bring
YOUR recorders for one last time this week! Test next week!
I'm looking forward to the Davis Thayer Talent Show!

Talent Show Intro!

Here is a YouTube clip of the intro that the staff performed
at the Jefferson Elementary School Talent Show last night:

The Providence Bruins Game!

Last Friday, the Jefferson 4th and 5th Graders sang
in front of a sold-out crowd of over 10,000 people
at the Providence Bruins game at the Civic Center!

Wonderful Job!


The Jefferson 4th and 5th Grade choruses sang their hearts out
at the Providence Bruins game last night! So proud of them!
