Classroom Spotlight

December 2021 – PS 1 Classroom Spotlight on 5th Grade!

Despite the pandemic and struggles with in-person learning, our fifth graders were still able to successfully complete the Ballroom Dance Residency with Ms. Akemi. They learned the graceful and energetic steps of dances such as the merengue, foxtrot, tango, and the waltz. And, our fifth graders had the opportunity to showcase their talents in the Final Performance in front of some eager and patient fourth graders. Congratulations to our Fifth Grade Dancers!

Many thanks to our ballroom dance instructors, Ms. Akemi and Ms. Mary, for their patience, flexibility, and support of our fifth graders!

After completing the Ballroom Dance residency, our fifth graders were able to engage in some usual fifth grade activities, in spite of an unusual school year. We look forward to more opportunities to perform and interact with other programs and organizations in the Spring.
