Carnegie Hall

Carnegie Hall Visit

Mr. Maleno brought all third grade students to participate in a special recorder program at Carnegie Hall, "The Orchestra Swings". During the school year students prepared for the visit by listening to "swing" music and practicing songs on their recorders. Their visit was an interactive performance where the third graders played their recorders along with an orchestra and jazz ensemble. Students can now say they played at Carnegie Hall!!

Autism Acceptance Month

Recently, Mrs. Freschi's class was visited by Dumont resident Liam McCormack. This amazing young man was diagnosed with Autism back in 2009. He enthusiastically shared with students the unique experiences and challenges he faced growing up. His important message to students was " Just because you learn differently, does NOT mean you are less capable than anyone else!" Liam is also an accomplished artist and has his own hand drawn sticker company, "The Sticker Spectrum." Each student received a packet of some of his stickers. Thanks Liam for sharing your story!

Author Visits Grant School!

Thanks to our PTO, Grant School students excitedly welcomed children's author/Illustrator Mike Malbrough. Mr. Malbrough shared the process he goes through when writing stories and sketching the pictures to go with them. It was another great way we celebrated Read Across America!
