Elementary Music We have had a fun time in elementary music class so far this year. Students are back to singing, learning new concepts, dancing and playing new music games along with their favorites. Talk Like a Pirate Day is always a hit and students enjoy hearing their new pirate name. K-3rd grades are learning from our new curriculum on becoming Artful, Tuneful and Beatful. 3rd & 4th grades have also been delving into identifying the different kinds of notes. 5th and 6th grades are preparing for their upcoming concert on December 8th at 6:00 pm in the high school gymnasium.
