The Villages Elemetary School

March is one of my favorite times of year.  Not only are we coming out of the season of winter but we celebrate what I absolutely love to do!  Music in our Schools month has been celebrated for 32 years now.  I have been celebrating this month for 24 years as a teacher.  I simply cannot imagine doing anything else.  Teaching here at The Villages Charter School has allowed me to explore new ways to teach your children.  TVCS’s support for Arts Education is never ending.  It has also allowed me to highlight your students through the mamy performances we have during the school year.  I love showing off your students talents. 

So, what are we doing in the month of March?

Both 1st grade and Kindergarten are working on Instrument Units.  They will be learning the 4 families of instruments: Woodwind, Brass, Percussion, and Stings.  They will be exploring classroom instruments like hand drums, triangles, woodblocks, cymbals, and maracas to name a few.  This unit is a lot of fun while learning.

Also this month Kindergarten and 1st grade will being working on their songs for Arts in the Park.  Arts in the Park is the Special Area’s main event for the year!  The event included all Special Area classes.  In music all classes will be leaning songs for their last concert of the year.  In Art Mrs. Broaderick have an amazing Art Gallery on display, PE teaches both grade levels a dance to perform, Senor Barker has work the students have done in her classes on display in the cafeteria, and finally Mrs. Bowersox shares stories and activities in the library.  Please plan on attending.  More information will be coming home after Spring Break.
