Congratulations to our music teacher Janell Mergan! She received a grant from the GEF and district to purchase 240 ukuleles for grades 3-5 for all schools.

Mrs. Mergan says, "Ukuleles are easier on the ears than recorders and help prepare young musicians for orchestra." By day two, children already knew chords, and the guitar-like instruments helped connect them with popular music.

Way to go Mrs. Mergan!  We can't wait to hear them at Cummings. Thank you for bringing these instruments to our schools.
