On January 22, 2015 at 6 p.m., Ms. Nikkolos held a Winter Concert in the cafeteria. The concert featured pieces performed by all of the 7th grade and the orchestra. The pieces, which the students have been working on for months, include “Hoedown” and “CB dance,” performed by 7-1. The concert also accepted donations that went to Helping Hands organizations such as Water.org, a foundation dedicated to providing clean water, and the BSGE Haiti Committee, which works to build schools in Haiti.
Ms. Nikkolos shared her thoughts on the event. “The students worked especially well together and cooperated on very difficult music for a first semester 7th grade class! I was very impressed with their ability to focus and learn the Sam Ulano counting system so well and quickly! The wonderful reception of the large audience speaks for itself! I was proud to direct this concert! Congratulations!”
