Matt made the cut for his marimba performance and Carly made the cut for her accomplished piano playing and composition skills. The two will perform at the Ten Grands Benefit Concert at Benaroya Hall on May 21.
Maple Hills Elementary School student council
The school’s student council celebrated Earth Day by making puppets of endangered animals and performing a song called “Ghost Bat in a Gum Tree,” which was recorded to help students better understand environmental issues around the world and celebrate Earth Day.
Grand Ridge Elementary School
The school’s students raised $2,460 for Haitian disaster relief efforts by reading.
The fundraiser, Helping Haiti One Page at a Time, asked students to gather pledges they could collect after completing pages of reading, writing, math and science assignments. The school’s PTSA sponsored the fundraiser, created by fifth-grade teacher Jenise Clausen.
Students donated the check to the American Red Cross on March 2.
