1st Grade Music Program
First graders performed a music program based off the book Where the Wild Things Are.  Their version of the book included songs, speakers reading the story, and movement. Our art teacher, Mrs. McDonald helped the students to create their own “Wild Thing” masks that they wore at the show.    
Second Graders Perform Starry Night
Second graders performed their Starry Night Performance for the entire school on Wednesday.  Some of the song selections included: Catch a Falling Star and When you wish upon a Star. They also celebrated Black History Month with the story Follow the Drinking Gourd.  Mrs. Danford’s class performed the song on the xylophones while the rest of the second graders sang the story. Our art teacher, Mrs. McDonald had the students create their own Starry Night paintings and the students paintings were displayed during the performance. We are excited to perform on Tuesday, February 25th at 6pm at GHS.   
Jump Rope for Heart
During Ace Day this week, GES students celebrated Jump Rope for Heart. A jump rope team from Dublin (grades 2-5) performed. Students then watched a short video on the benefits of fundraising for the Jump Rope for Heart program. GES students who have already raised money for this program were recognized and some have already received their “rubber ducky” prizes. Students can still register on this website if they would like to participate by searching for “Granville Elementary School”: The fundraiser will last until February 14. 2014. If you have any questions, you can email Paul Drake at pdrake@granvilleschools.org.   There was also a special surprise during the Ace Day assembly. Mr. Rogers showed the school that he still can “double-dutch” jump rope!
