Sing Books work gets a 2016 APS Honored Citizen Recognition
Posted April 9, 2016on:
It is with great joy and gratitude that I share the news that Sing Books work will receive a 2016 APS Honored Citizen recognition.
I’m incredibly grateful to Danielle Anctil (at Ashlawn Elementary School), Tom Mitchell (at Carlin Springs Elementary School) and Angela Torpy (my daughter Eloise’s 4th grade teacher who is serving as a Math Specialist in APS, and who opened the door for the joy I get Singing Books with the first grade classes at Timber Lane Elementary School) for nominating Sing Books for this special honor.
Link to the Press Release. The schools at which I sing books are not correct on the press release. The great majority of my volunteer hours have been at Tuckahoe Elementary School. I also sing weekly at Carlin Springs and Ashlawn Elementary Schools and in past years enjoyed weekly visits at Claremont Elementary School in Arlington, VA.
I also get the joyous pleasure of visiting the first grade classes at Timber Lane Elementary School in the Fairfax County Public School System.
Being able to share songs with the children in the classrooms is one of the greatest joys of my life.
