Thanks to the inspiration, dedication and enthusiasm
of our new music teacher Alison Manion and grants from MBNA, Island
Institute and Recompense the upper class will all be learning
to play the violin. SAD 51 offers musical instrument instruction
for the fifth and sixth grades at the mainland schools and here
is an opportunity for the island children to have instruction
as well. We are delighted to have a music teacher who has come
up with a tremendous program. With the help of parent Laura Summa
and principal Susie Robbins they have been able to obtain grants
to supply all the children in Mrs Smith's class with a violin.
Today the violins arrived and the excitement was wonderful as
you can see from the photos.
