LSES Weekly Update
Exceptional things happen here!
Week of March 21- 25
A peek into the 2nd grade...
We have also been studying legends and creation stories from different cultures in literature. Mrs. Richey's class is studying the story of how the turtle got it's shell and Mrs. Ramirez and Ms. Pardun's classes are studying Native American stories about land forms in the Pacific Northwest. Students will soon be assigned to create an original legend story. We can't wait to see what our creative and imaginative students come up with!
Oregon Symphony's Young Peoples Concert
Lincoln Street Elementary School Lifeskills class and Grade 3,4, & 5 students were guests of the Oregon Symphony on Tuesday, March 1. Our students enjoyed a Young People’s Concert at the Schnitzer Concert Hall in downtown Portland.
Before the concert, students learned about the symphony orchestra and a few featured composers: Beethoven (Symphony #5), Mozart, Copland (Rodeo), Stravinsky (Firebird Suite), and Haydn (Symphony No.88). Hearing all the instruments of the orchestra working together was a very special treat. Students studied appropriate audience behaviors and did a great job of being safe, respectful, and responsible.
In addition to hearing great musical works performed live, we got to stomp and clap under the direction of a very talented conductor (Paul Ghun Kim). The narrator, Pam Mahon, told us bout many musical words that described speeds of the music (tempo).
We heard a talented high school student play a trombone solo with the orchestra. The musical selections were upbeat and exciting. We enjoyed the beautifully decorated hall and the soft, comfortable seats.
Thank you to the symphony, our students, teachers, and parent chaperones who helped make the trip a big success!
