Center School's Fourth Grade Presents: The Show Must Go Online!


Melissa Drysdale Morrisey and the fourth grade teachers did the improbable - a musical done solely online!  What a tremendous display of talent, confidence, and showmanship from these incredible fourth graders. Their director/music teacher/wizard, Ms. Morrisey is simply a genius!

Enjoy the remarkable, highly creative show. What a group of resolved teachers, students, and parents knowing the show must go on...line!

Shine on Specials Week!

It has been so fun seeing all of you through Zoom (Murphy has loved it too!).  So much love and appreciation to you for continuing to do the tech activities in June!  You make me so happy everytime I hear from you!




STEM project alert!  Owen made the coolest erupting volcano!  It's 
going to make you want to try it at home - awesome job Owen!


Owen's sister, Addie, made a volcano erupt too! It's amazing to see!!





Olive's two dogs, Murphy and Brady can talk! Check out their videos!  Here's what she wrote about them:

Murphy was named after mom and dad went to Ireland. He is 9 years old. He loves to eat crust from my pbj sandwich. He loves playing with his brother and chasing him. My favorite thing to do is snuggle on the couch in the morning with him. His nickname is Fi Fi because that’s what I called him when I was a baby. He is silly when he sings to his favorite songs by howling. 

Brady was named after Tom Brady when mom and dad we’re living in Virginia. He is 10 years old. He loves carrots and chewing up sticks. I love to play tug of war with him. His nickname is Bray Bray. He likes to sleep in my chair. 








Nathan's dog, Bijou, can do a trick that Murphy can't! It's called the "head tilt"and it's so adorable!!



Inspired by watching Murphy after a Bath, Nathan shows us Bijou after a bath, love Bijou's sounds!




Graham (grade 5) sent this incredible picture of a robin's nest in his backyard! Wow!

Murphy, Your Center School Dog Interventionist!

Hello Everyone!

I miss you all so much!  While we are away from school,  I asked my Mom if I could make a video series to share with you what I've been doing and hopefully bring a smile to your face!  Check back often and feel free to write me or send videos of yourself to my Mom, at lgiuggio@longmeadow.k12.ma.us.  She will show them to me and I'll respond to you right away (I'm getting very good at typing on the computer!).  Take care!
Love,  

Murphy🐾💕
