At AES, we have all school assemblies twice a month with different grade levels leading the assembly. This past week, third grade led assembly. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to experience performing and speaking in front of an audience as well as school community building. Pictured above are third graders drumming for assembly.
Antrim 4th graders have been working on a State Symbols project with Jeannie Connolly, our Arts Enrichment Coordinator. The 4th graders consulted text and internet sources to become experts with their chosen state symbol, wrote a paragraph and drew an illustration, and then put together their books with Jeannie, Mrs. Storro, and family helpers.
