LinkUp! Concert at Carnegie Hall

On Tuesday, May 24, all of our 3rd and 4th graders participated in the annual LinkUp! concert at Carnegie Hall. Our students joined thousands of children from all over the region for a morning of singing and playing the recorder. The students were led by composer Thomas Cabaniss, conductor Rossen Milanov, Broadway vocalist Nethaniel Stampley, and the Orchestra of St. Lukes. Our students prepared for this concert during their music class with Ms. Stiel throughout the school year. Twelve of our fourth graders were chosen to be part of a select group of students who joined the performers on stage. It was quite a thrilling experience for our students to play on stage at Carnegie Hall, and also exciting for other members of the 278 family to see Ms. Stiel and children from our school singing, dancing, and playing the recorder on stage. Thank you to all of the parents who came as chaperones! A special thank you to George Cade who joined us as our official photographer!

Spring Fair 2011

On Saturday May 21st our community celebrated springtime and our fantastic school with Spring Fair 2011.

There were BBQ hot dogs and hamburgers and a crafts table, the Uniform Program table and many many more fun things to do and see. The event drew close to 800 people and was, needless to say, a smashing success! Congratulations to all who made Spring Fair possible and a special thanksto all those who attended the event ready to party!
