All Around the Village

Here are Maddux first grade students singing and following the lyrics to a traditional folk song called "All Around the Village".

The lyrics are:

Go all around the village, Go all around the village, Go all around the village, As we have done before.

Go in and out the windows (3X) As we have done before.

Now go and choose a partner (3X) As we have done before.

Olympic Day

I know this video technically does not qualify under the category of music, but I thought it was too priceless not to share. Last Friday, the Maddux 6th graders competed against the other elementary schools in the Forest Hills School District in sporting events; Maddux ended up winning overall first place! This is a video showing their return back to school on Friday, and the celebration of all the students at Maddux. Congratulations to Mrs. Lembach and all the students who participated!
