Dancing Classroom Competition!

Let’ s cheer on 12 of our 5th Graders as they dance their way through the Colors of the Rainbow Competition on Wednesday, February 25.

Short Avenue is so happy to have Dancing Classrooms in our school! Dancing Classrooms uses social dance as a vehicle to transform the lives of students who participate in the program.  A curriculum-based teaching approach utilizes the vocabulary of dance to break down social barriers, eliminate bias, teach students to honor and respect each other, and promote self-confidence, communication, and cooperation.

Pizza Rev

You pick out your dough, sauce, cheese and toppings and PizzaRev “pizza crafters” work with you to make your own pizza right before your eyes!
Here are the options: Choose your Crust: Original or gluten-free dough? Each one pressed into a thin canvas from a plump, homemade dough ball. Sauce it Up: Savory organic marinara, a creamy white alfredo, spicy-sweet BBQ or olive oil – or get crazy, mix ‘em up.
Top it Off: 30+ artisanal cheeses and fresh ingredients – keep it traditional with pepperoni and ground beef or get fancy with sweet fennel sausage, Kalamata olives, and fresh-picked basil and arugula. Pick as many pizza toppings as you’d like – PizzaRev doesn’t charge by the topping – when you’re done crafting you’ll have your own personal pizza masterpiece!
