Davis Thayer Talent Show!

The Davis Thayer Talent Show is tonight at 7:00 p.m.!
I'll be in one of the acts and I will also be running lights!
I can't wait to see all of the acts again! You were all so
great the other night at the Dress Rehearsal! Break a leg!

Military Experience?

Calling all persons with military experience.

We would like to invite you to Jefferson School on Friday, May 27rd from 1:00-3:00 to talk with a group of students about your experience in the military.  Our goal for Memorial Day is to put a personal face to the word "military" for our students.  Please feel free to wear your uniform or bring any memorabilia that would be appropriate to share with students aged 6-12.  Depending on the number of guests we get, you will be speaking in one or two classrooms and then joining us for a school sing of patriotic songs.

Please extend this invitation to any service person or a group that might want to join us in marking Memorial Day in this way.

Email Debbi Winterroth at or Kelly Lovejoy at with your interest or your questions.

Professional Development Day!

Today is a half day of school for students!

Wild West!

Here's the latest episode of The Beanie & Bren Show!

The Little Engine That Could

Not only is this a great story to share for it's message
about not giving up and for believing in yourself, but
it's also great for teaching about Tempo in music with
the different engines all representing different speeds!
