DE had an exciting sing-a-long this afternoon, with special guest Jennifer Johnson, Director of Family and Community Outreach at Golisano Children’s Hospital. She collected all the holiday cards students made for the health care workers at Strong Memorial Hospital. Students also spoke about various holidays celebrated during the winter season and sang traditional songs from many of the holidays. The teaches did a surprise dance for the audience and the event ended with the announcement that the students had a snow day tomorrow!!
