This has been a very exciting week in music class!
On Monday we had special guest musicians Emma Dean and Eddie Dickerson perform for us during assembly. They were even able to stay and have a ukulele “jam session” with G4 and G5. The students had a chance to explore Mr. Flowers’ primary instrument, the double bass. The students did an excellent job learning the basics of how to play the instrument, and were even open-minded enough to try it themselves!
Students also took some time this week to learn about the life and work of Tom Petty, to appreciate the contributions he made to music during his lifetime. ... See MoreSee Less
Around the world and at IST we celebrate World Cerebral Palsy Day! Our Grade 3 students have been reading "Out of My Mind", an inspirational story of a child with Cerebral Palsy. Our student trailblazers decided to take action by organizing a whole school "Wear Green Day" to show support and unity for those who have CP. From our school to everyone with CP you are an inspiration and shining example of courage and commitment to never giving up!
