Holiday Music Cheer

Music Cheer

In an effort to make the holidays bright for those in the community, students from Sycamore and Idle Hour Elementary Schools visited with residents at the Arbors Assisted Living Facility in Bohemia in late December.

Sycamore Avenue Elementary School second-graders met with their “Grandfriends” to showcase the spectacular songs they have been learning within their music classes. Under the direction of Sycamore music teacher Rachel White the students took turns singing and playing instruments on seasonal themed songs. Additionally, the students presented their “Grandfriends” with special ornaments they crafted within their art classes as a token of appreciation for inviting them into their home.

Additionally, Idle Hour Elementary School fourth-grade students within Patrick Brennan’s and Tracy McIntyre’s classes spread some holiday cheer by showcasing their newly attained ukulele skills, taught to them exclusively by Idle Hour Elementary School music teacher Kathy Daugherty. The students also created projects for their seniors to put on display during the holiday season.
