Kindergarten through 6th grade students in Mrs. Hageman's music class have been very busy the first few weeks of the second semester. 

Second through sixth grade students participated in St. Louis Symphony "Picture the Music"

"Where will the music lead your students’ imaginations? Picture the Music invites grades K-6 to discover orchestral music and respond with paintings and drawings that express creative thought and emotion. Picture the Music is a FREE competition, aligned with both national and state standards. Finalists are honored at a special awards ceremony at Powell Hall and featured in a traveling exhibition."

Students listened to the selection (found here) and created a work of art based on the emotion of the music. Then Mrs. Hageman selected one creation from each grade and sent it to the Symphony for the final judging. For more information visit this link.

Kindergarten through sixth grade music students are also being challenged to design their own music instrument! Mrs. Hageman gave the students a project overview and guidelines to begin their own STEAM project. The final projects will be on display during the Family STEAM Night/ Science Fair on February 2nd 6:30-8:00 p.m.
