On Tuesday evening we held our Renaissance Faire/Art Show/Open House. This was a bit earlier than last year and it was a bit of a scramble to get everything ready. All the hard work really paid off, with was what everybody seemed to agree was the best faire ever. All though I suspect "food trucks" would have been the answer to the question what was the most outstanding feature, they were many excellent displays and performances including the incredible Art Show put together by Mrs. Mutchnick, excerpts from "Romeo and Juliet" by Mr. Anderson's class, multiple dance performances courtesy of Miss Cynthia, fencing lessons, fortune telling, print making and lots more. It was a great day!
On the music department side both the choir and the recorder ensembles made their debut. I was extremely pleased with the job they did! We also had grade level dances from first grade and third grade and a preview of a show Jane Raphael's class will be performing later on the year entitled "The Right Biome." Amazing work from everyone!
I want to take a moment to pay special tribute to my colleagues Amy Mutchnick who put together a beautiful display of the children's art throughout the year, Cynthia Miltenberger who put together an wonderful dance program and still found time to shoot some video for me (see above) and Cathy Weiss who thought it all up. Congratulations to you all on a job well done.
