Music notes – Fourth-graders performed a recorder


concert recently for Hancock friends and families. Centennial celebration – Hancock celebrated the


Centennial of Arizona in grand style. The whole school created a timeline that included important events in Arizona history as well as world events from the past 100 years. During assembly students did “100 Acts for Arizona;” after assembly, students viewed the timeline as they paraded around the building starting in the preschool wing and ending in the fifth- and sixth-grade building. A time capsule was also created that will be opened in 2037; each grade level completed an Arizona- relevant project to be placed in the capsule. Tax credits – Donations for 2012 can be given any


time starting now. Donate up to $400 to Hancock and receive credit back for the full amount. Thanks to the Hancock families who have already contributed. —Suzanne Incorvaia


Jacobson Jets Save the date – Jacobson’s Spring Carnival will be


a.m. to 4 p.m. Thu., March 8 in Tarwater’s Multipurpose Room. Every month throughout the school year, parent volunteers have introduced students to a new artist and examples of the artist’s works. The volunteers and students explore the artist’s techniques and the students create their own original artwork in the style of that artist. The collec- tion of the student body’s artwork to be displayed includes paintings, drawings and sculptures. Kudos – Congrats to the 30 Tarwater students who


attended the annual CUSD Student Council Convention. They did a great job representing Tarwater, learning new lead- ership skills and looking great with their “Back to the ‘80s” theme. Students prepared for the convention by making a banner and a collage and writing a song about leadership. Class notes – Fifth-graders have been busy learning


about the American Revolution. To bring the “taxation without representation” concept to life, some classrooms had a visit from King George and his soldiers. Students were “taxed” on various activities they had been able to do in the past for free, such as using a chair, getting a drink of water and talking. Students each brought in five quarters for this activity; the “tax” money collected will be donated
