Thank you to all of our Armatage students for the extra hard work and effort they’ve put in these past few weeks.  Congratulations to all of the students who volunteered to be ushers during both performances, and to those who tried out for solos, to be a descant singer, and/or a Yankee Doodle dancer. Thank you to the students who volunteered to be announcers and alternate announcers, and memorized their lines as promised. Your willingness to participate, follow through, and “go the extra mile” is what makes you and our school so special!


Congratulations to the 1st and 2nd graders from Denise Clare’s class (room 110) and Jessie Mahabadi’s class (room 111) for their superior Student of the Month performance (April 21).  They sang the Earth Day song “Big Beautiful Planet”.  


Kudos to the kindergarten students from Heather Lingen’s class (room 102) and Margo Borth’s class (room 105) for their terrific  performance for Kindergarten Round-Up (April 28).  They sang and signed (American Sign Language) “The Bear Went Over The Mountain”, and also sang ”Popping Corn”.


May 19th is our last Student of the Month program. The kindergartners from rooms 101 (Michele Lehmbecker’s class) and 107 (Jane Campbell’s class) will be performing. They will be singing “Popping Corn”.


I hope to see you at our All-School Spring Music Programs on Thursday May 11th. Again - congratulations to Annie LaMere for bidding in the M3 online auction and winning the front row VIP seats for both Spring Music Program performances. See you on May11th!


Have a wonderful week!
