Elementary school band
is a time for instrument introduction, exploration, music discovery and learning, and enjoying the performance of music! In 5th grade, all students are part of the band program as their music class.
We learn the instrument care and maintenance, basic techniques, music literacy, and how to play together as an ensemble. 5th grade band is all about introducing the performance of music on instruments on a larger scale than in their previous music classes. The 5th grade band performs in December, March, and May!
Students at Sccs will learn to work with various tools, processes and media. They learn to make choices that enhance the communication of their ideas. Our Goal is to make our students Develop confidence and experience joy through creative expression. We encourage students to make critical judgments as they develop aesthetic perception by interacting with works of art and becoming knowledgeable about history and world culture.
Students at SCCS start physical education in Kindergarten. This subject focuses on developing physical fitness, knowledge of movement, and safety. Our goal is that students get to develop different skills to participate in a wide range of activities such as volleyball, soccer, and basketball. Students get engaged and learn the ability to perform and enjoy day-to-day activities.
Music is an important aspect
of providing children with a well-rounded education. Music benefits the ability to learn new vocabulary, to work together and to show their best individually.
When playing instruments, they have the opportunity to grow motor skills, to coordinate eye-hand movements and to work as a group. They develop disciplined habits of study and they learn how to read the sheet music and follow the conductor. In addition, music is an excellent tool with which to express emotions, to form relationships and to develop relationships with greater depth and understanding. For these reasons music education plays an important role in SCSS.
