Making MUSIC with Miss Tierno

Music students are learning all about Recorders and music notes during Blended Learning centers in music class. 6 stations are set up so students are exposed to a little bit of everything during their class time. Some students were using Chromebooks to make their own music on Compose Yourself. Other stations include making your own recorders on popsicle sticks, filling in music notes, and learning to play the recorder in a small group with the teacher.

Saturday School:

Our school has started a new initiative to increase instructional time for students who have acquired three or more detentions/suspensions/other incidents over a two week period.
