Central-Denison Elementary School

Third Grade classes enjoy walking classrooms! In January, students listened to a podcast about the poet Jack Prelutsky while they walked. As a child, Prelutsky did not like poetry, but now he has published hundreds of poems. He uses a lot of figurative language, such as personification and alliteration. The students read several of his poems as well. The students were motivated by some of his made-up characters, like the umbrella plant. So, they also created some silly new characters of their own to use in their fiction writing.

Lake Geneva Middle School

On Wednesday, November 16th, the Lake Geneva Chapter of the Lyric Opera of Chicago (LGLOC) took Lake Geneva Middle School’s (LGMS) music students to Chicago to see a live opera.

This is the sixth year that LGLOC has provided LGMS with this opportunity. The entire experience for each student/chaperone/teacher, including transportation, the opera tickets, and a food stipend, was funded by LGLOC. It was a great experience for the students to ride the train, visit Chicago, view the architecture, and hear a world-class performance.
