CHAPIN STREET SCHOOL COUNCIL
The Chapin Street Student Council has had a very fun and productive school year. This year there are 18 members on the student council. Ms. Jodi Yarkey, a 2nd grade teacher, is this year's advisor. Ms. Yarkey reports that the council collected over 2,000 pennies to donate to Pennies for Patients and planned many "Special Days" at Chapin Street including: Crazy Hair Day, PJ Day, School Spirit Day, and Twins Day. Currently the student members are making and selling Friendship Pins for .50 to benefit Ludlow's Relay For Life. Many kudos for these young students who definitely are learning the importance of volunteering and are making a positive difference for both the Chapin community and the community at large.
The Ludlow Public Schools is proud to announce the four recipients of the 2013 Pioneer Valley Excellence in Teaching Award:
Jennifer Prior, Donna Katz, Michelle Jurkowski and Katherine Dias
Each teacher was nominated by their colleagues and then chosen by a selection committee. Click here for further information about these amazing teachers.
Baird Middle School Concert Band Prepares for the Great East Music Festival
Now that the spring weather has arrived, and windows are open, some of you passing by Baird Middle School in the afternoon may hear the sweet sound of the 7th and 8th grade BMS Concert Band practicing for their annual band competition: The Great East Music Festival. Over this past year these ambitious band members have not only spent several hours practicing but they also planned several fundraising events to pay for the entry fee, allowing them the opportunity to participate in this competition. Ms. Mongeau reports the band has participated in the event for the last five years, receiving gold medals each year!
In addition to the wonderful guidance of Ms. Jill Mongeau (BMS Band Director), this year Dr. Karen LaVoie, Director of Music at Westfield State University, as well as other local directors and former Ludlow High School Band Director Cindy Koch, will be working with our students to assist in helping prepare the band members for this important competition.
The event is scheduled for Friday, May 31st at Westfield Middle School North at 8:30AM, and is free. All are welcome to attend and cheer on these amazingly talented and dedicated musicians. We wish them all the best!
