Lions’ Ziggy Ansah helps Dye Students Go To Detroit Tigers Game

image3Mrs. Klein and Mrs. Keskes classes raised money all year popping popcorn on Fridays.

All of their hard work paid off on May 14th! The teachers surprised the classroom with a trip to see the Detroit Tigers!

And that was not all, with a generous donation from Mr. Lony Jarnigin’s (CA board member) GM Co-workers each student received a Tigers T-shirt. Another donation from a Dye staff member allowed them to experience each ride! The students were excited, happy and a little stunned!  That is not the end of the story.

Dye’s Showcase Concert 2015

On Thursday, April 23rd, about 60 of the third, fourth and fifth grade musicians at Dye Elementary performed in the 2015 Showcase Concert.  The concert began with all of the students singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “Charge On, Cavaliers.”  Then the third graders took the stage, each of them taking turns singing duets for the verses of the traditional folk and popular songs they sang.  After that, the fourth graders were featured playing their recorders.  Next, the fifth graders performed a variety of songs, several of which included percussion accompaniments.  For the finale, all of the students returned to the stage and sang two closing songs together.  The concert was well received by a supportive and gracious audience.  The musicians celebrated with a Tootsie Pop treat after the show.
