Music News - December 2019
Season’s Greetings Parents,

On December 19th, we will be having our annual Holiday Concert at Stevens Brook. The K-2 performance will be at 9:30. It will be followed by the 3-5 performance at 1:15. The concert will feature guest musicians Rick Lange, the elf bass player, and Bernie Vigna, Ms. Vigna’s father, playing percussion.

We’re covering many different styles of music this year-classical, jazz, folk, pop, spiritual, and classic rock. Students will be singing in a diverse range of languages including Latin, Hebrew, and even a little Italian.

One piece that the band is playing is very challenging because it changes from the more common 4/4 time signature to 3/4 and 2/4, and concludes in 4/4. Chorus is performing a classical song in Latin that is especially difficult because there’s a point in the song where three different melodies are sung at the same time.

Students of all grade levels have been working very hard, and are excited to show what they can do. We hope you can join us, and feel the spirit of the season.

Physical Education News for November 2019
Physical Education News

We have had a great start to the new school year in physical education class. The Kindergarten, First, and Second grade classes are well underway learning about exercise and how it helps their bodies. They are learning exciting new games and words like Locomotor Movements (walking, running, jumping, hopping, galloping, skipping and leaping) and demonstrating their ability to do them. The First graders challenged themselves with some leaping skills and the Second grade students have been combining there Locomotor Movements together to see if they can transition smoothly from one to the other.
The Students in grades Three, Four, and Five started the year with a variety of games where the emphasis has been on encouraging and congratulating each other. It is heartwarming to see and hear students helping each other out and noticing success and effort in their fellow classmates. The nice weather at the beginning of the school year allowed us to be outside so the third grade students had the opportunity to get in some bike riding. What a fun way to exercise! Students continue to learn about the “Components of Physical Fitness” (Endurance, Strength, Flexibility, Agility, and Body Composition). They are learning and trying a variety of activities and exercises help to improve each specific area of fitness. In the future we will be doing some more “glow in the dark” activities. I am thinking 4 square could be a lot of fun in the dark!
