It is so much fun to introduce students to new things! Today 6th graders in STEM learned about circuits while playing the bongos using play-doh and a MakeyMakey. They even asked to skip a mask break to keep playing!

Students created model rockets using written and visual directions. After the model rockets were complete, students decorated the rockets. Lastly, students inserted the engine and connected the ignition. From a safe distance, the students used a double key button system and a countdown for blast off.

Did you know that every month, approximately 100,000 pounds of CDs become obsolete, according to the Environmental Protection Agency?Most are destined for the landfill. As we celebrate the Earth this month, Art Club upcycled CDs into beautiful one-of-a kind suncatchers!

Students illustrated many different themes on their CDs.
Students use different paints to create custom colors. This group created a beautiful spring purple!
One SpARTan created a sunflower themed suncatcher!
Students used tape to remove the film on the CDs. That prepared the surface to accept paint and also allowed the paint to become transparent.
After studying about the United States space program, gas build up in a container, and thrust, the class constructed rockets out of 2-liter bottles. The rockets included fins and a nose cone. After their first launch, the students will redesign their rockets to include a parachute.

This is what being in Band is all about. In the Spring of 2019 the Lakeview Bands traveled to Atlanta, GA. Although the focus of the trip was to perform and compete, and we did GREAT, the bigger outcome were the experiences and memories made throgh music. There are few activities that kids this age can participate in that can have such a positive impact on them for a long time. They may not remember the outcome of the festival but they will remember the bus ride, amusement park, historical sights, and being with their friends for four days. They will have this memory forever. Want your child to experience the joys of music, get them involved in band where EVERYONE is a part of the success! New band members are always welcome!

Great start!
Band is Back! We are often asked how we do band while staying safe? Well, we have been using face masks with accomodations for brass and woodwind players, face shields for our flute players, and bell covers for all of our wind instruments. It has not been easy but the band students have adapted well. Eventually we will not have to use them but for now, it allows us to make music together. A huge THANK YOU to Mrs. Amy Vano for her time and talents in making our instrument masks for us. Can't wait to share our music with our community.
