Music Education is Important to Every Child

“During the Gulf War, the few opportunities I had for relaxation I always listened to music, and it brought me great peace of mind. I have shared my love of music with people throughout this world, while listening to the drums and special instruments of the Far East, Middle East, Africa, the Caribbean, and the Far North, and all of this started with the music appreciation course that I was taught in a third-grade elementary class in Princeton, New Jersey. What a tragedy it would be if we lived in a world where music was not taught to children.”

- General H. Norman Schwarzkopf — United States Army

Mr. Ruecking Isn't Too Chicken to Dress as a Turkey!

Mr. Ruecking and Mr. Farmer were both "winners" in the Student Council's contest.
The students voted for the teacher they most wanted to see wear the turkey costume
by purchasing  feathers for 25 cents each. Mr. Farmer managed to slip out of his costume
before this photographer could snap a photo.
