We had an amazing all school assembly a couple weeks ago called the World Music Tour in which your children were presented with a variety of musical instruments from different cultures. It was highly interactive, the kids and teachers were instructed to play on them, and the kids had a ton of fun. (See photos). We have an interactive STEAM Museum assembly coming up in May.
Thank you to the PTO for sponsoring all this, to the parents who have donated their time and money for this incredible amount of class enrichment at Hardy.
