A Musical Month in Levittown Schools
In honor of "Music in Our Schools Month," students and staff throughout the Levittown Public Schools celebrated their love of music in a variety of ways throughout March.
Northside Elementary School students integrated art and music during the month by creating art projects that reflected music which were displayed throughout the hallways. They also celebrated with themed days such as Disney Musical Day, Northside-Sing-Along Day and Classical Music Day. During music classes, students continued using the new Quavermusic.com. The website program allows students to create different rhythms and beats by touching the Smart Board in the classroom. The district is subscribed to the program for the next two years.
Levittown students also participated in musical productions throughout the month. Summit Lane Elementary School kicked off March with their production of Roald Dahl's "Willy Wonka KIDS," while East Broadway Elementary School students rehearsed for their show "The King and I," which they will showcase in April. Division Avenue High School students also impressed audience members during their multiple performances of "Mary Poppins" for the Levittown community to enjoy.
In addition, General Douglas MacArthur High School embraced "Music in Our Schools Month" by sharing music facts over the daily announcements. Teacher Kenneth Walden created a segment called "Today in Music History," where he provided daily information for morning and afternoon announcements. Each day he sharedthree to four interesting music related historical facts that happened in history on the same day as the announcement. Walden also included birthdays of famous artists on each day.
