SCHOOL SONG CONTEST

National Fine Arts Week is March 23rd-March 27th. In conjuction with Fine Arts Week, your child has an opportunity to compete in a school song-writing contest. Anyone in grades K-5 can put their creative ability to the test! Students are invited to compose an original song about our school. The top 3 songs, as decided by the specials teachers, will be voted upon by all Schumacher students. The winning song will be chosen during Fine Arts Week.

Don’t worry, we will always sing our traditional LS School Song, but it’s amazing to see what talent we have all around us, and we should celebrate it!

Your contest song should include original lyrics and may or may not have instrumental accompaniment. The composer does not have to perform it, but should be able to show that he/she was the musician responsible for the work.


All submissions must be in video format and are due to Mrs. Schwinger’s email address by 4:00pm on FRIDAY, MARCH 20TH. NO LATE SUBMISSIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR THE CONTEST.
