The students of Handley Elementary are excited to “Show What They Know” about music! Second and Third grade students will combine for a program the evening of Thursday, April 26 at 6:30 p.m.  During their programs the children will share what they are currently working on in music class.  The program is structured in a “Sing. Move. Play.” format.  Each grade level will share a few songs they are singing, a current folk dance they have learned, and an instrument piece that is being used to support the objectives in the music curriculum.  Finally, each grade level will share their song from our Annual Peace Concert.  We are looking forward to sharing with you!
