5/6 students arrived this Wednesday dressed to canoe. Little did they know their trip had been cancelled! Quickly, we scrambled and soon the 5/6 class joined 3/4 to a brass band concert at Castleton College! Here are some excerpts from students’ seven-minute writes:

Today we were supposed to go to the Maritime Museum canoeing. It was too windy so instead...we went to Castleton State College where we saw the Hot 8 Brass Band. Their music was really good because in the middle of their songs everyone stood up and started to dance and clap to the music. Livia

I liked the music and the instruments. There were two drums and one tuba and the most awesome instruments, the trumpets. Steven

It was really fun. They are from New Orleans. They have been together for 17 years this November. Sawyer

They did a lot of fast songs and we could dance, stand up, clap, or sit. There were a lot of kids there. They let us go up and dance. They would play their instruments then sing. Morgan
