Music in Our Schools Month

In honor of Music in Our Schools month which occurs each March, Raymond L. Young's third and fourth graders completed an "at home" assignment. The task involved designing and creating their own instrument, researching information, and playing their creation for the class. Students were graded on creativity, originality, and following the directions of the assignment.

From the picture below, you can see the many talents of R. L. Young students!

The purpose of MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOLS MONTH is to raise awareness of the importance of music education for all children and to remind citizens that school is where all children should have access to music.
Students at Young are fortunate to have regular education teachers who make great efforts to incorporate music into their everyday lessons!

Making music part of the school day is a challenge when a school does not have a music teacher. It's great to see the commitment of the R.L. Young teachers to giving children an all-around education.
