Physical Education teachers, Doreen Romanchuk and Tracy Radler held their Jump Rope for Heart event at Lore School for the 21st consecutive year. Sixty students participated in the after school event to raise money in support of The American Heart Association. The students did various jumping activities at 14 different stations and a good time was had by all! Hoops for Heart is scheduled for April when fourth and fifth grade students will play three on three mini basketball games for the same cause. Each year, we hang our event banners proudly in the Lore School gymnasium.
The Lore School Parents Association put together a grant to have Young Audiences of America perform and conduct workshops with students during January and February. On several occasions the performers shared how to recycle junk into instruments and helped students create their own music. On February 27th, a final performance was held for entire school showcasing a 5th grade class using their handmade drums.
On February 12th, the kindergarten classes at Lore celebrated the 100th day of school! Students have been preparing for this since the first day of school. It is part of their daily calendar routine to count the days of the school year. Students also created 100th day posters with various items representing 100 that they shared with their classmates. So when the 100th day finally came, they did it big! Open this headline for details!
