2009 W-M Elementary Spring Program

Wakefield - May 21, 2009

Following a most successful band concert Sunday, Ms.Louann Ditmyer produced and directed another wonderful show. Monday afternoon she brought the young vocalists from grades Pre-K through grade Four in front of a packed house to perform the "Elementary Spring Program"

The show was outstanding and the kids had as much fun performing as the audience had watching and listening.  While we've been to much larger concerts we've been to none better.

The second grade students  started the show of singing "It's A Celebration! ", written by Katherine Dines

The second grade class was then followed by the Early  4 year olds who sang  "I'm Singing in the Rain" . They did a really wonderful job as did all the performers. It was quite enjoyable to watch and listen to the elementary students perform so well. There wasn't a glitch in the entire performance

Following the four year olds was a combined effort by the Fours - Pre-Ks and the Kindergarteners.  They sang "Sharing"

They were followed by the PK and K students who sang two songs, "A Good Old Happy Song" and "Oh, What A Day! "

The first grade students also sang two songs, "ABC Rock" and "The Parade Came Marching "

The second graders again were center stage and sang two more songs "Don't Dump Trash"  and "Zudio ", a traditional street song of the United States.

The third grade students then performed "Now Let Me Fly", an African American Spiritual.  They were then followed by the second grader student who performed the song "Everybody Say Peace "

Following their brief one song rest the third graders performed two more  songs "It's Our World" and  "Waltzing with Bears "

The fourth grade students were next in the spotlight singing "An American Song "  They would get a short break when the third graders sang " Michael Finnigan", an American Tradition Song.

The fourth grade students then would carry much of the remaining program, performing three songs, "Rock Island Line" (the railroad song),  "Haul Away Joe", an English sea shanty song  and "Dry Bones " , another African American Spiritual.

The fourth graders were then joined by the first through 3rd grade students performing
a French Canadian folk song "J'entends Le Moulin"  after singing one more song "Crocker " the group would be joined by their music teacher, Ms. Ditmyer" who then closed the show singing "I'll Make a Difference"

This was a very good performance, much better than one might expect from such very young students. Ms. Ditmyer has done a great job with all her little musicians and singers.
