Chebeague Island School

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.
