She is willing to take on extra tasks and assignments for our school.

Learning about Africa through Dance


The sixth grade classes at Wilson Elementary recently learned about ancient and modern-day Africa and the daily customs of its people. To enhance their learning experience, Holly Markgraf-Mayne visited each sixth grade class and taught the students some traditional African dance moves that they then combined into a whole dance piece. The students loved talking about Africa and learning the dance, and they had a blast doing it all! It was an enjoyable and memorable experience for the students and teachers alike.
