2nd and 3rd Graders Share Adventures & Laughter at Camp Collins

Wow, what an all around fabulous job the second and third-grade campers did at Camp Collins. We couldn't be more proud of their positive attitudes, their willingness to help out in any way, their fun-loving nature, their cooperation, their adventurous spirit, their good manners and their courage. They persevered with joy, showed hardiness in being away from home and trying new things. They will no doubt be stronger from this experience. Moreover, the memories they created and the laughter they shared with one another will last them a lifetime. Their awesomeness was beyond words.

Recently our third-graders have been working on a Nigerian folk song called "Eh Soom Boo Kawaya." The arrangement includes three separate instrumental parts (marimba, bongos, and xylophones), as well as vocals. Each instrument plays different notes and rhythms, while singing the tune at the same time adds an extra layer of complexity. The kids have enthusiastically accepted the challenge and done a tremendous job piecing it all together. Way to go kids!
