3rd Grade String Ensemble
Plays Together

Our Third Grade Ensemble started in-person at 78th Street this week! Third Grade kicks off our boys’ musical journey playing in orchestras at A-S. Group settings provide a great opportunity for our boys to not only play their instruments with their friends, but also to learn how to play as a cohesive whole, develop listening skills, and improve upon the skills taught in their instrumental lessons.
Our students across all grades have continued to excel in Academics, Arts and Athletics. Take a look below to see what our students have been learning this year!

First-grade students are learning to count with candy. They used Skittles to create visual representations of arithmetic operations. These colorful candies were perfect for sorting items into groups by color.
Fifth graders wrote, directed, and starred in historical video shorts describing a day in the life of a Mayan, Incan, or Aztec person. They designed costumes and virtual backgrounds, and researched the geography, culture, economics, military, government, and social structure.
Señorita Spielberg’s Eighth Grade Advisory wrote goals for the new year using music as a means of motivation! Boys considered what songs motivate or inspire them and connected these tracks to a goal.
