Hardwick Students Collaborate with Singer-Songwriter Jon Gailmor

On Thursday, April 20th, HES students participated in an Ice Cream Social with special guest musician, Jon Gailmor. In the morning, PreK, K, and 4th grade students engaged in hour-long songwriting workshops with Mr. Gailmor to create their own songs. Later in the afternoon, they performed their songs, along with Mr. Gailmor, as part of a school-wide concert. The purpose of the event was to celebrate students' at-home reading and all of the Read to Me! contracts that came back signed – thank you to 80% of our students and families! We thought you might enjoy listening to the creative work of our students as they present: “The Best Pets”, “The Kindergarten Song”, and “My Grown-ups”, all on the OSSU YouTube channel.

This event was made possible by the CLiF Year of the Book literacy grant awarded to Hardwick Elementary for the 2022-2023 school year.
