Students in Grades 5-8 Perform at February Flag Assembly

Several of Mrs. Eifler's students performed at the February Flag Assembly.  Mrs. Gore's fifth and sixth grade class performed their district music festival piece Tranquil Light.  While learning this piece, the students created their own dances and auditioned for their current roles in the piece.  In the video, the fifth graders play the instrumental parts as the sixth graders sing and dance.  They will perform their piece again March 4, 2011 at UPSP for the District Music Festival.  Please contact Mrs. Eifler for more details. 
Three seventh and eighth grade students also performed in the ceremony from Mrs. Eifler's Private Instrumental Studies Class.  The students in this class have selected instruments that they wanted to play in lieu of their main instrument.  Some students have not played an instrument before and and are learning the keyboard.  Students in this class recieve private instruction once a week and work independently the rest of the week on their assigned goals.  At the flag ceremony, all students are playing new instruments with only a month of practice!  They did an OUTSTANDING job!
