Morning Sing


What has "risk takers" performing on stage, teachers reading and singing to the entire school, and students still talking about events from elementary school years later? It's "Morning Sing," a unique weekly tradition that brings together the entire school community for music, literature, recognition, and friendship.

"The Morning Sing allows us to gather as a community and share many wonderful experiences," Jenn Simanski, a third-grade teacher at Lake Street School in Spencer, Massachusetts, told Education World. "It gives us the opportunity to award and recognize student achievement."

"This program has developed great school-community spirit and cooperation among grades and grade levels," added Simanski.
