Shamona Creek celebrated its’ diversity at the International Assembly. Dancers from India, Uganda, Ireland and Japan captivated the crowd performing native dances while wearing beautiful costumes from their countries. Students were privileged to hear their peers speak in native tongues as students who speak German, Spanish, Chinese, Romanian and Murathi at home introduced each performance.
Celebrating that we are all Americans, we looked at the history of American Dance. Third graders from Mrs. Marx and Mrs. Millers’ class showed the etiquette of the 1810 Virginia Reel. The 1920 Charleston was performed by Mrs. Maxwell’s second grade “flappers”. 1925 highlighted the Cotton Eye Joe by Ms. Alden’s fourth graders. The Bunny Hop came on the scene in 1950 and was performed by first graders from Mrs. Vaultier’s class. Mrs. Giardini’s fifth graders showed the popular 1992 line dance, Achy Breaky. Teachers and staff were not to be outdone as they startled the crowd with a 2012 Flash Mob. The finale featured the entire 5th grade demonstrating the latest craze, the “Wobble”. Dance is much more fun, when everyone can join in! And that’s just we did!

Five Day Rotation Schedule Announced - Beginning the 2012-2013 school year, elementary schools will move towards a five day rotation to establish equal programming for all students. Those with children enrolled in before school band, chorus and orchestra will experience this change the most, although the change also applies to Gifted Ed., staff, nurses and psychologists. Should a day on the rotation be missed due to inclement weather, the schedule will continue on to the next day in the rotation, with the missed day made up on the next assigned snow make up date.
