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.

ART

Students in grades one through five receive art instruction one day each week. Grades six through eight may select art as an option. They learn to draw, paint and sculpt using a wide variety of art mediums and methods.
