News from Mrs. Spargo:

The students at Edison have been very busy in the music department.
Here's what's happening in the music world at Edison:
  • Congratulations are in order for the superb Holiday Concert put on by our second and third grade students! These kids rocked the house with their enthusiastic singing, dancing, and acting!!
  • Our kindergarten and first grade classes will be starting the music to their upcoming musical called, "Hats!" This is sure to be a performance you will NOT want to miss! More information will be coming soon.
  • Our third grade students have begun the process of learning to play an instrument called the recorder. They are having a blast strengthening their music reading skills while learning this fun instument.
  • On February 6. 2015, the fourth grade students will be going on a field trip to hear a performance provided by the Tacoma Youth Symphony. What a great opportunity for these students to experience a live orchestral performance.
  • In April, our fifth grade classes will be attending an interactive concert called "The Orchestra Sings," sponsored by the Tacoma Symphony Orchestra. Students will have the opportunity to sing, play the recorder, use movement, analyze musical structures, explore instruments, and develop their musical imagination as they explore orchestral music
