Chrome Music Lab

Hi Everyone!

If you need a break from practicing for the spring performances, check out the Chrome Music Lab website for cool music games and experiments. You can create melodies, record and change the sound of your voice, and learn about sound waves and frequencies. The Spectogram and Oscillators are my favorites!

Enjoy!

The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra

Students in Grade 1 have been exploring instrument families during the UOI “Where We Are in Place and Time.” Students played an interactive game developed by Carnegie Hall to learn about the instruments of the orchestra. The game is based off of Benjamin Britten’s piece “The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra,” and is available to play at home for free by clicking on this link. Students in older grades might enjoy playing it, too!

Dear Parents,

Students in Grades 2-5 will be performing The Reindeer Whisperer on Thursday, December 8th at 4:30pm. The students have been working hard to memorize songs and practice lines, and we need your help with costumes!

Students should wear any combination of the following colors: red, green, white, silver, black, and brown.

Acceptable clothing items include the following: pants, sweaters, long sleeve shirts or tshirts, dresses, skirts, and leggings. Shorts are not permitted and shoes should be black or brown.

Costume items should be brought to school by Friday, December 2nd. Please write your child’s name on each article of clothing, and put everything in a bag with your child’s name on it. Costumes will be stored at school until the performance.

In art class, students will make additional costume items. After the performance, they’ll be able to take these hand-crafted pieces home.

If you have any questions or concerns, or are interested in helping further with the performance, please feel free to email me at Rmacoskey@scis-china.org. Thanks for your support!
