The 4-5 music programs traditionally are wonderful performances led by our music guru, Kathy Ganske. This year was no exception as our students put on an excellent show. This year’s theme was US history, so if you are a parent, your child will probably be able to dazzle you with all sorts of historical facts. Below are some pictures of today’s performance.
The Ewing Young contingent to the 24 competition was smaller than it has been for many years, but as always, they represented our school well! The 4th grade team was made up of Joy, Alina, Abbey, and Paige. Six boys made up the 5th grade team: Brock, Hunter, Brogan, Taylor , Weston and Alex. Each of these players participated in 3 rounds and scored many points. Quarterfinals are the top 16 from each grade level. Here the competition changes and students may have to make totals of any number 0-48. Paige and Abbey qualified for 4th grade quarterfinals! At the 5th grade level Brock, Hunter, Brogan, Taylor and Weston all advanced. From the quarterfinals, the top two competitors at each table advance to the Semifinals. EY had four of the top eight 5th graders: Brock, Hunter, Brogan, and Weston. Both Hunter and Brogan advanced to the Final Four with Brogan capturing 4th place and Hunter placing 1st! All ten students exhibited good sportsmanship and worked hard today.
Today our students took a quick trip up to Portland to attend a concert featuring the Portland Youth Philharmonic Orchestra at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. As usual, our students demonstrated excellent manners and citizenship. Below are some pics of our trip. Thanks to our chaperones who helped out today.
