CASC – Great minds, great programs

“Going to the Opera!”—all school event
Guess who got to experience the opera last week….YOUR KIDS! All of Memorial Spaulding was treated to a special interactive-concert. The kids learned about baritones, tenors, altos, mezzo-sopranos and sopranos. Several kids performed in a mini-opera — “The Emperor’s New Clothes” and “Cinderella”. They were seen on stage, with the cast of “Opera to Go,” being guided through a memorable and entertaining experience. Everyone had smiles on their faces, and they all shouted “bravo” when it was done.

Meet the next generation of engineers—3rd grade workshop
The third graders got a taste of what it’s like to be an engineer this week. They all attended a presentation called Techsplorations on Structures. Then each class met separately and had an individual workshop. They built their own bridges and towers. It wasvery impressive. Be sure to ask them about Roman arches, suspension bridges, tension and compression. Also ask them what the strongest geometric shape is (hint – it has three sides). And finally – ask them about Memorial Spaulding’s very own Blues Brothers – Ms. Fleming and Ms. K-E ! It was a really fun and informative program.

We will continue to update you on programs through out the year, so you can learn exactly how your PTO dollars are benefitting our children. We thank you for your continued support. If anyone is interested in joining our committee, please feel free to contact one of us. The upcoming programs include authors, illustrators, scientists, culturists and historians.

Thank you,
