May 31 - June 3, 2016

Bacon Bears,

What a week!  We kicked it off with our art showcase and concert at the Levoy Theatre.  All the planning and preparation paid off.  The students performed with excellence, the crowd was pumped, and our school was represented with pride and honor.

It was our school's first time performing at the Levoy, but that didn't seem to bother our students one bit.  They rose to the occasion and played and sang their hearts out.  The band did a great job, the bucket drummers got the crowd moving, and the singers left it all on the stage.  Even the principal got in on the action and accompanied the chorus on his guitar (along with other guest musicians) for a swinging dixieland rendition of "When the Saints Go Marching In."  Truly, a great time was had by all.  A big thanks goes to the fine people at the Levoy who helped coordinate the event, our fine and performing arts direction Henry Hartman for pulling it together on the district end and supporting our staff, our art teacher Meganne Peck for putting together a wonderful display of student artistic talent, and Beth Rohaly for preparing the band and chorus for their moment in the spotlight.  Also, a huge thanks to all the staff who volunteered to supervise our students at the Levoy and for being available in whatever way they were needed.  It would not have happened without everyone's hard work.  Thank you!

The "Jump with Jill" assembly took place last week.  Students were encouraged to respect their bodies through good choices such as exercise and what to eat.  The high-energy performance had students on their feet, and the presenters interacted well with our students and kept them engaged, singing, stomping, and laughing the whole time.

Olympic and Fun day was Friday.  The day started with the traditional parade through downtown Millville.   All elementary schools were represented, and the sense of school and city pride was palpable.  Once we arrived at Memorial High School, the games commenced.   Our 4th and 5th grade students had a blast competing against the other schools.  The weather was a little warm (or downright hot depending on whom you asked), but after weeks of rain and gloom, nobody complained.

We have a lot of trips and events coming up in the next few weeks.  Check the week at a glace section below, but also be sure to check the school calendar.  When in doubt, feel free to call the school.
