Grade 5 Shares Thoughts on Girls Day & Instrumental Concert

Girl’s Sports Day

“Girl’s Sports Day was a big event for all 5th grade girls in Cambridge. It was held on Tuesday, June 9th at Danhey Park.”

“Why, only the Girls? Why not boys too? Well to answer that question, I will have to admit the sad truth, more money is put into male sports teams then female sports teams.” (Note: Did you know the U.S Women’s Soccer Team is currently in the playoffs and at the writing of this had made the quarter finals?)

“Girl’s Day was really fun and enjoyable!   Girl’s Day is where Girls Play Sports all day.”

“We did some sort of warm up, dancing to “Uptown Funk”. After the warm ups we went to our groups.”

“All the girls in the Cambridge Public Schools formed together into different groups like yoga, golf, soccer and much, much, more!”

“I never played softball in my whole life, so it was fun to learn how to play.”

“My personal experience with girl’s day has been wonderful. I was assigned to play golf and ultimate Frisbee.”

“I was in yoga, with Ms. Liz. We did poses like downward dog & child’s pose. Ms. Liz taught us some other poses to help calm our bodies.”

“Walking around the park, you would see all smiles on each girls face. That day helped motivate 5th grade girls all around the Cambridge to stay healthy, stay fit and to stay active!”

“The Morse School did a human pyramid, and looked really good, but then everyone fell down. I had the best day ever.”

“I usually don’t like sports but I enjoyed Girls’ Day!”

“Girls day is extremely fun!”

“I hope all the future 5th grade girls enjoy their Girls’ Sports Day as much as I know the 2015 5th grade girls did.”

Instrumental Concert

“On Tuesday, June 2nd, the 5th graders of different schools participated in a concert for their instrumental class. The songs that were played by the string instruments were: Song for Christine, English Round, and Lightly Row. The songs that were played by the brass and woodwinds were: Hot Crossed Buns, Au Claire de la Lune, Skip to my Lou, Merrily We Roll Along, Crusader’s March and Mary Anne. The singers started off the performance with their beautiful voices. “

“The teachers to thank are Mr. Tally, Mrs. Chandler and Mr. Rathbone. This was a great performance from the 5th graders.”
