4th and 5th grade students imagined that they were one of the animals from the Kansas City Zoo and they took a trip to the symphony. This was part of the preparation for the students to attend a Kansas City Symphony’s concert, Symphonic Species, on Tuesday, October 14th.
The Writing Challenge Winner is…
5th Grade, Ms. Lavely’s Class
The writing challenge was a competition between all the students who attended the Young People’s Concert on Tuesday, October 14th. Our very own Kelsey Jordan from Ms. Lavely’s class was the winner! Kelsey wrote from the perspective of a polar bear. She was honored at the concert by having her journal entry read at the concert, and she received a season pass to the Kansas City Zoo and tickets to a Kansas City Symphony Concert. Congratulations, Kelsey!

Today I promise to be in control of my attitude. I can be a caring friend. Be honest in what I say and do. Show respect to others and myself. Care for our building. And give my best effort in all I do. I will soar to my personal best. Because I am an EAGLE.
