MARCH IS MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOL'S MONTH

March is recognized as Music in Our School’s Month. Throughout March, music educators and music students around the country will be celebrating music education in their classes and discussing how this year’s theme, “Music - The Sound of My Heart” resonates with them. The impact of music education on the lives of students during this school year is evident in how the social-emotional benefits have carried our students through the pandemic and brought joy to their lives. We encourage families to have discussions about how music is celebrated in your family and how it has been a part of your family’s history and traditions. Thank you for supporting music and making music an important part of our children’s education.
