School happenings: Cider Mill

Dress Like a Rock Star

Cider Mill students celebrated Dress Like a Rock Star Day on Friday, Jan. 22, as part of Wilton Education Foundation’s fifth annual Reading Rocks! program. Reading Rocks! is a fun, non-competitive read-a-thon program that incentives children to read in their leisure time.

Fourth grade concerts

Kent and Belden Hill fourth grade orchestra and chorus students performed a winter concert on Thursday, Jan. 21, and Cannondale and Nod Hill fourth graders performed on Tuesday, Jan. 26.

"The performance is a snapshot of the children's musical development, featuring some of the technical and ensemble challenges they are encountering at this point in their studies," according to the district's Jan. 22 News from the Schools newsletter.

Different musical styles were represented during the concerts, which included a variety of American music from different time periods and regions.
