Music Melody With Mrs. Murray
Havel's Musicians are off to a great school year! Kindergarten and first grade students have been doing activities that focus on steady beat, exploring classroom instruments, and singing skills. Second grade students have been focusing on singing and rhythmic notation. The third grade students have been listening to and singing music from Africa! They have also been playing singing and steady beat games that are similar to games played by children in African villages. The fourth grade students started off the year learning about tempo (speed of the music), learning tempo vocabulary, and composing music using different tempo markings. Fifth and sixth grade students composed music using of different forms (patterns) and textures using both classroom instruments and the computer program Garage Band.

Halloween Costume Guidelines
All of us at Havel work diligently to teach children how to solve problems in a non-violent way. For Halloween we do not want to see children dressed as perpetrators or victims of violence. This includes props and accessories related to blood, gore, and weapons. Parent, please monitor your child’s costume choices. Keep in mind we don’t want our youngest students frightened by gory or scary costumes. Those should absolutely be avoided. Students whose costume may be too much for our younger students may be asked to not wear their mask or possibly not participate in the parade.
