Veterans Day Ceremony


5th grade students singing “My America” for the Veterans.


Mill City String Quartet


On Friday, October 28th, the Mill City String Quartet visited our elementary music room. They are a group of professional musicians based out of Minneapolis. Minnesota Public Radio graciously sponsered the group and it was a free performance for any public school.

The string quartet consisted of 2 violins, a viola and a cello. The group performed a 45 minute show for 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. They told the kids about their instruments and explored how music makes us feel. At the end, our kids asked some very insightful questions. Through these questions we learned how musicians record music for movies, that the cello that was played was made in 1865 and a lot of other interesting facts.  See more pictures here.

 My America


1st grade proudly waves their flags as they march to “Stars and Stripes Forever”.   See more pictures here.

 During the month of October, the students have been busy getting ready for our Veterans Day ceremony.  Every year all elementary students take part in singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” and another patriotic song.  This year, we will be singing “My America”.  For this song, the younger kids will sing “America (My Country ‘Tis of Thee)” while the older kids sing a different melody.  The kids are always very proud to be part of this ceremony and look forward to giving their thanks to our Veterans!  Feel free to join us on Monday, November 14th at 9:15 a.m. in the West HS Gymnasium for this event.
