On Friday, April 6, 175 Hunsicker Elementary School students (grades K-2) gathered at the Cedaredge High School gymnasium to perform the school's second annual PE/Music Showcase.
The standing-room-only event was packed with teachers, staff and parents as the energetic students danced, actually physical exercise and calisthenics, choreographed by physical education teacher Ms. Henderson to some really "old timey" ("The Hokey, Pokey," "A–You're Adorable," "Inka Dinka Doo," "The Alphabet Song" and others) music.
Students from Mrs. Wilson's fifth grade class made up the color guard.
Designed to be compatible with both the school's physical education and music curriculums, Ms. Henderson choreographed the physical activities for the evening, while music teacher Mrs. Waehner led the students in singing the songs from the past while they exercised.
The event gave the students the opportunity and confidence to perform in public, while offering them a fun way to burn off some of their excess energy.
Students from grades 3 through 5 will offer their version of the PE/Music Showcase on Thursday, April 19, at the CHS gymnasium starting at 7:00 p.m.blog comments powered by Disqus
