Sixth graders in Bernadette Bober’s room at Race Brook School are participating in a songwriting workshop.
This program was made possible by a grant awarded to RBS from the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation.
Students were asked to brainstorm freely as a whole and then broken into smaller groups to allow for the development of themes, lyrics, and melodies.
The groups were offered guidance as needed but encouraged to work as a team to flesh out their ideas. This gets them out of their comfort zone and fosters cooperation and team building.
This program is called “Write it Out” started by Guilford-based singer/songwriter Laura Clapp. She is a Berklee College of Music graduate, mother of two and performer who loves working with children through song.

Throughout Amity Regional School District No. 5 schools The Peace Project will be installed in outdoor areas, such as our own courtyards.
This project of peace is a direct response to the anti-Semitic concerns that were raised at Amity Regional High School earlier this school year.
The Peace Project showcases that the Amity community does not condone discriminatory sentiments and instead wishes to live in a community of support and peace. It is up to us, as members of this community, to work to make this wish a reality.
The event is open to the public and organizers expect crowds of hungry diners! Bring your family and friends to the Orange Fairgrounds on May 24 between 4 and 8 p.m. Where you’ll find plenty of great food trucks serving up a wide variety of delicious delicacies.
Be sure to like the Facebook page for up-to-date information and come kick off Memorial Day weekend at the Race Brook School Food Truck Festival!
Please note that some seating will be available, but you’re encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to set up your own picnic space on the field.
