Cultural Arts Week


This week our school celebrated the cultural arts. Everyday there was an assembly featuring an artist of some kind. We had a drum ensemble, African story tellers, a poet, puppets, and a banjo player. Two days this week, we had a special visit by a dad of one of our students. Mr. Matt came to play the piano for the children in the front lobby. They enjoyed this close up view of a musician playing the instrument he loves. The Charlie Brown theme song was a favorite along with a jazzy version of Jingle Bells. The kids got up and danced to the music. We want to thank Mr. Matt for the great performance and to let you know that your son was beaming with pride. Come back and play for us again, Piano Man!!

We also enjoyed Mr. Matt's paino playing Friday night at Arts Extravaganza. Even Sofi recognized the Charlie Brown tune.

Mr Piano Man,
"You've got us feeling alright!"
