Washington Central music teachers hosted a full day of music celebration and learning opportunities for our elementary, middle and high school students at U-32 on October 25, 2017. The students from our five elementary schools joined a workshop model in the morning to explore our Artistic Expression Student Learning Outcome more in-depth. The students were in three groups that focused on instruments, strings or chorus. After morning workshops, groups of students from U-32 middle and high school performed for the elementary students. After lunch, elementary students from all five schools combined to perform as a band, string ensemble, and chorus.
Several of the elementary students said how much fun they had during WCSU Music Day. The students also remarked at how impressed they were by the high school’s students and that they wanted to strive to reach their level.
Washington Central would like to thank our eight music teachers for organizing and delivering a tremendous learning opportunity for all of our music students. Anne Decker, Roger Grow, David Powelson (U-32); Katelyn Liptak (Berlin); Brad Ohlson (Calais); Michael Close (Doty); Samantha Gelfon (East Montpelier) and Kira Krikorian (Rumney) – your continued enthusiasm and expertise in music for all of our students is appreciated and valued.
