“Yesterday was the first day for students to sign up for orchestra. As I was visiting about expectations, I stressed the importance of practice, etc. No sooner had I said the word practice, then 7 little fifth graders began singing “Practice, practice, practice.....” and not a word was forgotten.”
- Carol Ellenwood, Kearney, Nebraska Public Schools
