- About Rutledge
Our Student Council recently sponsored “Rutledge Recruits”, a program to help collect materials for children of military families that are relocating. Families donated a variety of items: coloring books, crayons, granola bars, activity books, books, sketch pads, and healthy packaged snacks. A workshop night was then held to assemble all of the goodies into buckets for the children. We were pleased to have a family from the Great Lakes Naval Base come and talk to those attending about being in the service and the difficulties in relocating. The evening was a great success, with 50 buckets being prepared. Thanks to all who attended and made the evening a great one.

Music in the Air
Our fifth graders, under the direction of Mrs. Carlberg and Mr. Miles, performed beautifully this week. They played a number of instruments, and sang a variety of songs. One of the songs was writtten by the group. It is wonderful to hear our children raise their voices in song, and inspire all of us.

This week, the District Art Show was held at Village Hall. What a wonderful showcase of student talent. It was nice to see many families attend to celebrate and see outstanding work. Please stop by Village Hall in the next few weeks to check out the many works that will be on display.

Family Science Night was such fun!!! Students and parents moved among stations to learn about a variety of science topics. Families worked with batteries and circuits to see how electricity flows, experimented with objects to test whether they would sink or float, investigated how hot air helps things rise, and learned about the effects of yeast. It was a fun-filled evening. Thanks to the PTA for helping us to sponsor this event. We hope to add to our evening next year, and accommodate even more families for the fun!

Skyping with Lebanon
We were excited to skype with a school in Lebanon this week. Our fifth graders, under the direction of Mrs. Carlberg and Mr. Miles, are working on writing a song together as a class. The song will then be shared with the students in Lebanon, and they will contribute. The composed song will be debuted at our fifth grade concert in May. We are eager to see the results of our collaboration!! Skyping is such a great way to communicate with others that are across the world. We hope to continue our collaboration into the future.
