Today was an ICA day at Sutherland middle school. All the kids were able to pick an activity that they liked and participate in it for the last hour of Friday. Due to rain some activities were stopped, but the kids had an hour to hang out with friends. Cornhole, flower pot decorating, art, and games were just a few of the fun activities kids chose to do for ICA.

Washington DC Trip

Eighth graders in extracurricular band, art, and chorus who applied took a special trip this weekend to DC. They were gone from Friday morning to Sunday evening. The kids went to art museums, a show at Ford's Theater, to see the National Symphonic Orchestra at the Kennedy Center, and explored the streets of DC during the Cherry Blossom Festival. The chorus and band kids also performed a number of pieces, singing and playing, at the train station. The art students are putting together a documentary of the trip which will be posted on the blog as soon
as it is complete. Stay tuned!
