    The Year in Art at Schrop
    This year has been an exceptional year in art at Schrop. All of the students’ hard work has shown in the past few weeks. We had fourteen students have their work accepted to the Summit County Arts Expo at Portage Lakes Career Center. Ten of those students won awards including first places by Skyler Colegrove and Lillian Stover. Skyler also won Best of Show for the entire sixth grade. Four Schrop students Antonio Conner (6th), Shariah Brewer (6th), Madison Mayle (5th), and Lillian Stover (4th) were also honored by having their work chosen to be purchased by Akron Children’s Hospital to be displayed in the new wing of the building and to also be added to the hospital’s permanent collection.
    Musical Notes
    Another year has quickly gone by and many new concepts for each grade have been mastered.  The fourth grades have been working really hard on recorders and quite a few have earned their black belt.  Fifth graders have been studying songs of America. They gave a great concert in the spring featuring “Fifty Nifty United States” and “America.”  The fifth grades have also started band this year and their concert was outstanding.  For the first time, we had the song, “Bring Back My Bonnie,” as a duet played by Zach Lininger on bells and Kaylee Mercer on flute.   Haley Stalnaker accompanied soloist Amani Chava on trumpet, playing “The Good Life.”  Congratulations to all four students for work well done.  Our sixth grade band has to be one of the best bands Mrs. Richardson and I have ever had.  This band also has many outstanding musicians. We will hate to see them moving on. Congratulations for the fine work they have done. 

    Schrop Idol was a big success again this year.  We had 10 great performers and three outstanding finalists:  Cadence Oliver, Rachel Young and winner Madison Miller.  Our judges were Colin Lepolis as Ryan, Nadison Johnson as Jennifer, Nate Stephenson as Harry and Derek Davis as Keith.  Also, a big thanks to Olivia Nagle as Stage Manager, Eric Ford as Sound Engineer and Evan Morris with Cue Cards.  

    Thank you to all of the students for their efforts to make this a successful year.  I am looking forward to another fine year, next year.
