Under the direction of Music Teacher Elizabeth Schwake and accompanied on the piano by Matt Schutt, the elementary school students sang a variety of silly songs and kept the audience giggling with their jokes.

The Kindergarten students sang “The Wheels on the Car”, “Michael Finnegan” and “I’ve Been Cleaning Up My Bedroom.”

The First and Second Grade students started off their performance with “Tell Me a Joke”.  “A Wild & Wacky Western Tune,” was sung with a refrain by the students performing with rhythm sticks. Their final set was “Talk to the Animals.”

The Third and Fourth Grade students performed “Oh, How I Love the Opera” and “Save a Piece of Pizza for Me”. The Fourth Grade students were featured on recorders performing “There’s a Hole in the Bucket” and “Shades of Blue.”
