Jumping for Jazz at Britton

Britton students were jumping for jazz during two afternoon assemblies this month. Musicians Becky Ogden, Dave DeWitt, Derek CiCenzo and Aaron Scott presented authentic jazz music in a fun and interactive way, involving students at every step. The primary students were treated to a musical presentation of Pete the Cat, and were able to sing along. The program concluded a jazz theme for the year, which also included a fifth grade musical. The program was made possible through corporate and individual support for JAG educational programs.
