Alcott Elementary School teacher Jennifer Kuehnle won the STAR 101.5 Elementary Teacher of the Week award.
The Blackwell Choir, directed by Adrienne Sabo, is open to all 4th and 5th graders who are interested in singing and learning more about music. The group focuses on good singing technique, learning songs in two and three parts, and occasionally features members in solos and small group work. The music includes patriotic and folk songs, appropriate holiday selections, and standard repertoire and songs just for fun. Students rehearse once a week during their lunch recess and have performances at school assemblies and around the community. This year the group will perform at the Veterans Day Assembly and the Very Merry Sammamish Event.
