Students in the fourth-grade chorus at Robinwood Lane Elementary School gave a performance March 28 for their fellow students and faculty at the school.
The performance, directed by Dean Wilson, featured facts and musical numbers about famous individuals in history and how they contributed to society. Individuals featured included Nellie Bly, who traveled around the world in 72 days, breaking a world record, Albert Einstein, who developed the theory of relativity, Helen Keller, who overcame being blind and deaf to learn how to communicate and to help others communicate, Charles Lindbergh, who made the first non-stop flight across the Atlantic Ocean, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who fought for civil rights and equality.
This year, fourth-grade teachers combined language arts with music to create an essay project about heros. Three essays, written by Gia Ditullio, Jared Benko, and Casey Wert, were selected to be read, discussing their heroes and the impact those heroes have on their lives.
Also, at the assembly, students who were given the Brotherhood Award were recognized. The Brotherhood Award is given at Robinwood Lane Elementary School to students who show true compassion, through many ways, including volunteering or simple acts of kindness, to others during their time at Robinwood Lane.
Nick Ott, Sophia Botak, Olivia Wamsley, and Anthony Micco were this year’s recipients of the Brotherhood Award.
