🎉 Exciting News: Foundation for Haslett Schools Grants $1695 for Updated Elementary Music Curriculum! 🎶

We have some incredible news to share with you, once again! The Foundation for Haslett Schools has awarded a generous grant of $1695 to support the purchase of an updated music curriculum for elementary classrooms at Wilkshire Early Childhood Center, Ralya, and Murphy Elementaries. This much-needed update will bring a fresh and engaging approach to music education, leaving the old 23-year-old Gameplan curriculum behind.

 

Introducing MusicPlay Online (www.musicplayonline.com), the new and innovative music curriculum that is set to revolutionize the learning experience for our students. This comprehensive program offers a wide range of interactive activities and technologies, designed to make music education fun, interactive, and accessible for all. Using this curriculum, students will learn music theory and playing and singing from their own student account, at home or at school. This resource covers our current Haslett Board approved scope and sequence for elementary music.

 

One of the standout features of MusicPlay Online is its teacher lesson plans, which provide visual learning targets. These plans will help our talented educators provide clear and engaging instructions, ensuring that students have a clear understanding of their learning objectives. With these visual aids, our teachers can create a more engaging and inclusive classroom environment.

 

What makes this new curriculum truly remarkable is its ever-changing nature. MusicPlay Online is committed to reflecting the development of our diverse learning community. It is conscious of songs and repertoire with a questionable history, including those originating from minstrelsy or outdated viewpoints. By being mindful of this, the curriculum promotes inclusivity and respect for all students, ensuring that no one feels excluded or marginalized.

 

With this grant, we are not only providing our students with an updated and accessible music curriculum, but also empowering them to explore the world of music in a way that is both educational and culturally sensitive. We believe that this investment in their musical education will have a positive impact on their overall learning experience and personal growth.

 

We want to express our deepest gratitude to the community for their donations to our recent Individual Donor Campaign. It is through your incredible support that we are able to invest in our students' education. Together, we are shaping a brighter future for our children, one note at a time. Let the music play and the learning flourish! 🎵📚

 

Please help us keep the momentum going by donating to the Foundation’s mission to fund beyond the fundamentals. Look What’s Possible with your support!
