Russell Cave Students Perform for School Board Meeting
September's school board action meeting opened with a recorded performance by students from Russell Cave Elementary, who put together a special celebration in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. Fifth graders presented “Vamos a la mar,” a Guatemalan folk song, in Spanish and English. They composed and performed the instrument accompaniment and added an improvised rhythmic section, with activities they like to do at the beach. In addition, fourth graders performed the popular Cuban anthem “Guantanamera” and played accompaniment on ukuleles.
