And as promised here are the words and the audio for "Wonderful Roscomare Road," written by Melissa Manchester many years ago when she was a Roscomare parent. You've been singing it since you were in kindergarten, but this will be the last time so make sure you make it count!
Hi 5th graders -- here is a tutorial video that will help those of you playing ukulele for culmination on the mash up song. A little work for you this weekend, but it'll be worth it!

Hi Fifth graders -- here is the second song (of four) we will be learning for culmination -- this one will be mashing up with "Rocket Man," by Elton John. I do not have a nifty subtitled video for you, but I do have a lyric sheet for you.

Hi Fifth Graders, Here's a video that will help you learn the first of our culmination songs. I will be posting the ukuleles parts and a pronunciation track for the Spanish words soon,, but for right now you should be learning the English lyrics. Culmination is just six weeks away, so let's get to it!

Hey there third, fourth and fifth graders -- the Roscomare Roadrunner String Band is starting up again and we are accepting new members. If you are joining us for the first time, you will have an opportunity to perform at the Westside Serenade in a few weeks. You'll also have a chance to play music like this -- from our final rehearsal of section 3 last week.
One of the larger classroom projects we completed this year was the First Grade's musical adaptation of "The Ugly Duckling." The children analyzed the story which was broken into four seasonal parts (the story takes place over a year.) Each class was them give the responsibility of developing music and movement illustrations for one of the sections. Here it is all put together. Enjoy!
