The 3H Crew has many reasons to be happy: they worked hard and presented many neat projects for their families to see at our open house; they were in a three way tie for 1st place in Landmark Games (Primary Group A); they survived the never ending winter and made it to spring; and they created amazing instruments as a part of our science sound unit. Watch and listen to them jam to Because I'm Happy by Pharrell Williams.
