Music to Their Ears

When your principal is a musician, it’s no surprise that a concert is an all-school celebration of student learning. It’s also no surprise that the students' favorite songs are those about snow and snow days off from school. That’s what we found at Collins Elementary, where students performed for their peers in a final rehearsal before their big show. At Collins, and every elementary school, it is winter concert season, where the repertoire includes popular band and orchestra pieces, and choirs singing jazzy snowman tunes to warm a winter’s night.
