Hi Everyone!
We’re doing really well on funding our Riley’s Farm trip with Yellow Cluster through Donors Choose.  Thank you to everyone who has already donated $15 (or more, wow!) so our kids can go on this amazing trip.  We only have until December 6th, 4 more days, to fully fund the trip and have our donations matched by using the promo code SPARK.  We have approximately $1100 left to go, so if you haven’t yet donated, please do so soon!  (And then we won’t have to clutter up your inbox any more by sending more email reminders! :) )

Once a week Blue cluster students meet with our musical director, Mr. McBain and work in collaborative groups to learn about musical orchestration.  With Mr. McBain's guidance, the students produce original musical pieces by utilizing a variety of instruments including, bongo, drums, xylophones, gong, and many more. The small group creations are compiled into one class 45 minute performance.Take a look at one of our student groups during rehearsals:
