Had Tel's Spring Concert at school last night. It was really nice. The theme was "This is America". The kids had to wear a red, white or blue shirt and jeans or shorts. They sang patriotic songs and had the volunteer firemen and any service people from the area there. They sang "American Tears", dedicated to them. There was a current Army soldier, a Vietnam vet and a WWII vet there. They asked for a free will donation to support the music dept. instead of trying to do a fund raiser.

He is having Titanic Day today and had to dress nicely to be a passenger on the Titanic and will finish their study of it today. He also has an Art Club field trip to the Indianapolis Museum of Art tonight after school. Friday is their Science Fair. He did an experiment with another boy to prove what conducted electricity better, wood or metal. They built a circuit board where they can put in the wood or metal and see which will light a lightbulb. Also had to draw pictures and do a report on their findings.

The boys' head is swimming!!! Top all this off with the sinus infection and I'm sure he will collapse on Friday after school! We will get their report cards then and be done! Woo-Hoo! We will start Summer Reading at the library next week.

The concert sounds great! We had Sam's last week. It was sooo loooong. There are 3 bell choirs, at 2-3 songs each. The 5th grade chorus, 6th grade chorus, jazz band, and they thankfully combined the 5&6th grade orchestra and 5&6th grade band. Then, a grand finale with all participating!

We don't finish school until June 19th, one week later than usual because of all the snow days we had this winter.

Glad to hear (in another post) that Tel is feeling better. Sometimes those sinus infections are tricky to catch! That's happened to me with Sam.
