New Jersey Elementary Honor ChoirFour students from Allen W. Roberts School were selected for the New Jersey Elementary Honor Choir, an all-state choir for students in elementary choral music programs. These students successfully passed a rigorous audition and will perform with the choir during a festival in early May. Singers from throughout the state submitted audition CDs to a panel of expert judges for adjudication. Students earning the top scores were accepted into this prestigious group. Another student auditioned for CJMEA Intermediate Regions Orchestra along with other 6th-8th graders from throughout Central Jersey, and was selected to play trumpet. This Honors Orchestra will perform in the early SpringValentine"s Cards for VeteransAWR students created Valentine"s Day Cards for soldiers currently hospitalized with injuries around the world. This is the second time this year that AWR has sent cards to the troops. Last time, they were very well received as a veteran visited the school and shared some of the soldiers" thank you"s and well wishes. In addition, students have been collecting plastic bottle caps of all shapes and sizes. Since the beginning of January, a veteran has visited the school twice, collecting hundreds of these caps, that will contribute towards a new dialysis machine at the VA hospital.Share the Our Schools newsletter on Facebook or Twitter or forward to a friend!
