Nepali students from ADL come and share with 1st grade class!

At our last Green Mountain Sing, 5 Nepali students from ADL came to Hiawatha and shared a greeting game and a Nepali dance with Mrs. Pepin's first grade class!  They first visited Mrs. Pepin's music class in March.  They came in their beautiful clothes and performed the dance, and then they taught the first graders some of the movements.  It was wonderful to see the connections being made!   Together we worked to figure out the Nepali words to one of our Hello greeting games.  They returned in May and we practiced again to be able to perform for this past Green Mountain Sing.  They all did a wonderful job!

 A very huge thank you to the many parents and grandparents who came and helped out with the Petting Zoo.  We could not have done it without you!  The students were very excited and it was wonderful to see their enthusiasm as they tried the different instruments.
