This Week at Roderick School....
Special thanks to Ms. Salazar for leading our 76-member Beginning Band! Our student musicians did a tremendous job with their first concert this Wednesday evening! There was a full program complete with solo pieces, various small group ensembles, as well as large ensemble selections. Students also took charge of introducing classmates who were performing solos. Check out pictures of the performance below!
Congratulations to all of our beginning instrumentalists who were also accepted into the Honors Band! Bravi Tutti!
Fifth Grade Innovators!
Earlier this week, fifth graders put their knowledge of physics principles and simple machines to good use in creating a humane "Groundhog Trap" during science. Check out these scientists in action. These types of hands-on, authentic applications are reminiscent of the old "Invention Convention" and are now a regular part of our science instruction. Not only were they great problem solvers individually, but each group functioned well and the students were able to be a part of a design team, each contributing something to the team's work.
Here's what you can look forward to after the February Vacation!
