Upper School Chorus Prepares for Family and Friends Day

For the past several weeks, the Abintra Upper School Choristers have been rehearsing some fun and challenging songs to present on March 23 at 4:00 PM, kicking off our Spring Family and Friends Day.

Our goal is to entertain you and lift your spirits with songs from Rogers and Hammerstein's The King and I, John Lennon, Paul Simon, Violeta Parra, Randy Newman, and Domenico Modugno.

We are grateful to have musician and Abintra parent Tony Taliaferro accompanying us on keyboard.

We hope to see you on Friday, March 23 at 4:00 PM in the Parent Ed room!

Air Play By Ella
Last week, students attended Air Play at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. Air Play is about how things move in the air. There were two people who had huge pieces of fabric and balloons of all sizes. In one of the balloons, there were packing peanuts and glitter. There was also confetti. Everything would fly in a circle of fans. There were also beautiful umbrellas that would dance all through the air. There were suitcases that had all the props for the performance in them. For an example of what was in the suitcase: there were balloons that the performers would go inside of, but do not try that at home!

News From the Stock Market By Max and Ben
Note: In a previous newsletter, it was reported that UE Guide Garrett closed down banks with $10,000 worth of Abint Coins (cyber currency) in them. A group of students decided to sue Garrett, but discovered that they did not have a case. They have formed a new plan to solve this issue.
