Dorchester Star - - Regional - Seiz­ing Beauty.

SEC­RE­TARY — May was a busy month at War­wick Ele­men­tary School. With the end of the school year fast ap­proach­ing, stu­dents, staff and par­ents par­tic­i­pated in many events and ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties.

Thurs­day, May 19, was the Spring Arts Night. Stu­dent art­work was dis­played in the hall­ways and me­dia cen­ter and there were sev­eral stu­dent mu­si­cal per­for­mances, in­clud­ing the third grade flu­to­phones, the be­gin­ning band, the in­ter­me­di­ate band, a com­bined fourth and fifth grade chorus with pi­ano ac­com­pa­ni­ment by fifth grade stu­dent Cole Ledger, and a trom­bone duet by teacher Craig Duer­ling and fifth grade stu­dent Lo­gan Dukes.

Fri­day, May 20 was a school­wide field day. Stu­dents com­peted by grade level in games and ac­tiv­i­ties de­signed to build team­work skills and pro­mote good sports­man­ship.

The class who earned the most points, from win­ning ac­tiv­i­ties and show­ing the most pos­i­tive sports­man­ship, through­out the day will re­ceive the “Golden Shoe” at the end of year awards cer­e­mony.

Fifth grade stu­dents en­joyed a field trip Tues­day, May 24 to the Eas­ton Art Academy Mu­seum to con­nect, across cur­ric­ula, through the artist Paulette Ta­vormina’s work, ti­tled

Stu­dents have been learn­ing about sym­bols in their read­ing and so­cial stud­ies classes and Ta­vormina’s still life works are all about sym­bols. After view­ing the ex­hi­bi­tion, stu­dents had an op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate their own still life art­works.

Also on May 24, Bur­nished Brass Quar­tet vis­ited third grade stu­dents to per­form clas­si­cal and con­tem­po­rary pieces. The mu­si­cians shared their knowl­edge of how the brass in­stru­ments work and how to play them, which will help the stu­dents de­cide if they want to play in the be­gin­ning band next school year.

Wed­nes­day, May 25 was the Ca­reer Fair for stu­dents in grades three through five. Stu­dents dressed up to rep­re­sent the ca­reer they hope to have in the fu­ture. All month, classes have spo­ken with the school guid­ance coun­selor and other staff about what it means to be col­lege and ca­reer ready.

Lo­cal pro­fes­sion­als vol­un­teered their time to talk to stu­dents about how to fol­low a path into their par­tic­u­lar ca­reer field.

Lastly, on Thurs­day, May 26, stu­dents and staff at WES cel­e­brated Red Nose Day, a na­tion­ally rec­og­nized cause to raise money to sup­port chil­dren liv­ing in poverty. The day is spon­sored each year by Wal­greens, NBC, M&Ms, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Fund. All funds help to pro­vide clean drink­ing wa­ter, meals, read­ing pro­grams, vac­ci­na­tions, and other life chang­ing sup­ports.

The morn­ing an­nounce­ments fea­tured back­ground in­for­ma­tion on the pro­gram, and red noses were avail­able in the main of­fice all week for a do­na­tion of $1 or more. Over 350 noses were sold. Staff also sported tshirts that read, “I’m silly and I nose it!”
