Project Trio Concert

With the financial support of the Friends of Chamber Music and the coordination of the Metropolitan Youth Symphony, Lincoln Street was able to host the Project Trio Ensemble from Brooklyn, New York on Friday, January 5th.

From the Project Trio Website...

"Project Trio is dedicated to galvanizing artistic awareness through performance, education and community engagement. [They] believe that there is a direct correlation between artistry and scholastic achievement. Creativity encourages critical thinking. By combining classical repertoire with elements of hip-hop and popular music, Project Trio engages today’s younger audience.

Blending their classical training with an eclectic taste in musical styles, Project Trio has made an impact on audiences of all ages. The Wall Street Journal hailed the Trio for their “wide appeal, subversive humor and first-rate playing.” The Trio was forged out of a collective desire to draw new and diverse audiences by performing high energy, top quality music. Using social media to broaden their reach beyond the concert stage and classroom, the Trio has its own YouTube channel, which has over 80 million views and 96,000 subscribers, making Project Trio one of the most watched instrumental ensembles on the internet."

Baby, We're Back!

First, Second, and Third-grade students happily embrace the return of their homeroom teachers, Ms. Richey and Mrs. Crnich after their maternity leaves. Both teachers return re-energized and ready to engage students in the remaining six months of the school year.

Kindergarten Learns about Compost

All three kindergarten classrooms had a guest speaker, Ms. Nicole from Metro, a Portland Area governmental agency that deals with garbage, recycling, and compost of various parks and venues, such as the Oregon Zoo and the Portland Expo Center. The students learned all about compost in Ms. Nicole's presentation.

Ms. Nicole engaged students in activities and discussions, encouraging them to think critically about how choices impact our lives, resources, and the future. Students were able to look into a compost pile to see how bugs and bacteria "break it down." Students saw how compost can help plants such as the sunflower grow and how composting can reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills.
