Reminder: Clive and Crestview No School — April 23 and 24

Dear Clive and Crestview Parents/Guardians:

We want to make you aware that there will be NO SCHOOL on Thursday, April 23, and Friday, April 24, at Clive and Crestview Elementary schools. These are professional development days for our teachers.

The April 24 date was previously scheduled and is part of our original district school year calendar. April 24 is a professional development day for all schools in our district. However, the Thursday, April 23, no-school day is new and is ONLY for Crestview and Clive Elementary schools. All other schools will be in session on April 23.

Clive and Crestview are adding the April 23 no-school day so that our classroom teachers can participate in a two-day New Tech Network training as we prepare to implement this model of instruction next year. The training is only available to us on these dates and is essential to preparing our teachers for next year. Please know that we will not have to make up this day at the end of the school year, and the last day of school will remain June 3.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Sincerely,

Drea Bocook, Clive Elementary                             John Villotti, Crestview Elementary

Kindergartners Have Rhythm in Music Class

Crestview kindergartners Cheri Cing and Gizelle Moreno-Casillas learn with rhythm sticks in music class.

Crestview kindergartners Cheri Cing and Gizelle Moreno-Casillas learn with rhythm sticks in music class.

Kindergarten music class is a time to explore, hear and develop the beginning knowledge and skill to listen and be able to talk about what students have heard and what they are learning.  Students have been learning about rhythm and steady beat this week. They have been learning how to read rhythm notation and different ways to show their learning. One day, they played an echo game with Crestview music teacher William Bird where each student used rhythm sticks to play each rhythm as an echo and then from written music notation.
