TES Drama Production Delights Community: The Elementary Drama had 3 amazing performances of Beauty and The Beast Jr. on Friday and Saturday, February 2nd and 3rd.  During the school performance, the audience waved their lighted roses to help with the magic everytime the human rose, played by Lillian Andrews, danced around the wilting rose.  They also waved them at the end of the performance to help with the magical transformation of the Beast back into the Prince.  The students never cease to amaze us with their professional performances.  It’s hard to believe that they are only 10-12 years old.  They sing, dance and act in a much more mature way.  The incredible costumes were made by our very own team member Susan Biggar.  Students received standing ovations for both of our community ... more >>

4th Graders Become Part of the Global Learning Community: We live in a global community. Connecting with people next door or across the globe is just a click or tap away. But how can students share learning with this world-wide audience? For our fourth graders, the answer was to make a website! This year, fourth graders have been exploring many questions including: Does where you live matter? Why did people choose to settle in New York and how did the Haudenosaunee people influence these decisions? Wondering who the Haudenosaunee are? Ask a fourth grader and you are sure to get a detailed answer! Researching Haudenosaunee culture and how it has influenced others, students created inquiry questions and researched to find answers. Students then collaborated with other fourth graders to create a page on a Google Site. In the past, families ... more >>
