“Fifty Nifty” State Song Tradition Lives On!

January 20, 2021 by Mariana Lemcovich (Faculty and Staff)

The venerable “Fifty Nifty” tradition lives on! We are so proud of our third grade students and teachers who did not let the pandemic stand in their way of performing the beloved state song and participating in this JPDS/MILTON rite of passage! Enjoy their creative and joyful video- and check out the surprise cameo in the middle of the song! 50 cheers for the students, their families (a/k/a videographers) and our teachers. Special thanks to Rabbi Mat Tonti and Jessica Friedman for championing and organizing the Fifty Nifty video, which connects with the year-long states project in third grade.
