What’s Right in the School District of Janesville

What’s Right in the School District of Janesville (SDJ) is a forum to recognize outstanding performances and achievements by SDJ employees, students and schools.
Summer Strings are “Rocking”

The following was submitted by Ruth Banwell, Director of The Summer Strings Program
“Summer string camp was an awesome week.  We studied Rock music and worked on pieces such as: "Iron Man", "Don't Stop Believing" and "Party Rock".  Through Finale Notepad we learned how to compose our own pieces of music.  Composer, Matthew Hollingsworth who now produces music for TV commercials and film was our featured guest.  Mr. Hollingsworth is an alumnus of the SDJ.  He attended Roosevelt Elementary, Marshall Middle School and Craig High School. Mr. Hollingsworth spent time teaching students how to compose music and assisted with a class project.  Students ended the week with a concert for parents.  Performing and composing was an enriching experience for all students who participated.”
Harrison Elementary Students Just Keep on Learning
152 students attended summer school at Harrison. In addition to the traditional enrichment courses, Harrison provided several courses in the core academic areas of math and reading. Students were invited to attend these courses as an extension of the Response to Intervention (RtI) work that they were doing during the school year.
