Music:

At GSS every student in grades K-5 participates in music class twice each week. Students engage in music through singing, movement, playing instruments, and basic rhythmic and melodic reading. Students in 6th-8th grade have the opportunity to participate in band class during their afternoon electives, and this year we have a morning choir before school on Tuesdays and Thursdays for students in 4th-8th grade. There are two performances each year, the Christmas Program (Dec. 1st) and VIP Night (May 11th).

Below are two websites that your students are familiar with from music class. These are fantastic tools for practicing music reading skills at home.
