All School Assembly - Utah Okinawa Kenjinkai Cultural Experience

Our Second Annual All-school Assembly took place Wednesday morning at MCS! All of our staff and students, from toddlers to elementary, gathered for an incredible presentation. The Utah Okinawa Kenjinkai group shared a beautiful performance about their cultural Japanese heritage. They introduced us to Okinawan traditional music, dances, folk craft, and martial arts while briefly discussing the Japanese history associated in a fun and enlightening way.




A lot of our young toddler friends enjoyed singing and dancing throughout the assembly while our older friends were impressed by the costumes and instruments. In the traditional Okinawan dance, the Eisa, there is a closing song to end the performance. We were invited to join the dancers and dance together waving our hands to the beat of the music and drums. It was a great experience for all of our students to enjoy this cultural opportunity as a whole community.

All School Science Assembly

  Janis Cantwell presenting at the University of Utah's Faraday Chemistry Lectures


This Spring our Elementary students will participate in a Science Fair. To gear up for the fair, we will be hosting an All-School Science Assembly. We will have Janis Cantwell, Early Childhood parent to triplets, no less, and the Hostess to the University of Utah's Faraday Chemistry Lectures presenting along with co-worker, Holly Sebahar, Early Childhood parent.




We are excited to be able to get together as an entire school "family" and celebrate each other and reconnect with the diversity of students across programs. We speak so often of community building and this is one way the youngest children get to see and interact with the oldest children. It is also a wonderful for the teachers to be able to all be together with their students and each other as a whole group. The Faraday Chemistry Lectures are fabulous, exciting, and entertaining and a sure way to get your student thinking about science. Our assembly does not come complete with a full chemistry lab, however, we are sure our mini version will be one your students will be excited to tell you about! The assembly will take place January 20th at approximately 9:20 am.
