    News and Info from Music Class

    Welcome Back!

    Welcome back to all of our students and young music makers! I am glad to see and hear so many smiling faces and singing voices once again!

    This year we will continue to use Orff instruments, including xylophones and glockenspiels! These instruments will be tools to teach your children technique for playing and to help them in improvising and creating their very own songs! They will also be part of the Orff Ensemble after-school group your students may choose to join. If interested in singing, students are also invited to join 5th and 6th Grade Chorus. More information on both ensembles will be sent out shortly. 

    Whether in music class or music ensembles, students are asked to bring a folder this school year to gather and keep music assignments and compositions. This music portfolio will give you and your children a chance to reflect on their work throughout the year and think critically as musicians. 

    All children—and all people—are musical in their own way. So, as the school year begins, I encourage you and your child to find something musical in the everyday!

  • 6th Grade Cultural Fair

    The 6th grade of Garfield School is having a culture fair in PBL. This culture fair is being implemented as a means of exposing our students to a variety of cultures they may have never thought about in the past. The mission of this fair is to highlight key aspects of countries from around the world. Our students have researched their assigned country and have created a tri-fold poster to display their research. Additionally, they have prepared either a t-shirt, song, or dance that accurately demonstrates the cultures and traditions from their countries. This PBL project is cross-curricular and has students working in pairs. Our hope for the end result of this project is a greater understanding and appreciation for different cultures across the globe as well as this being an opportunity for the 6th grade to share their knowledge with the younger grades.

KEARNY SCHOOL DISTRICT - INDEPENDENT WATER TESTING RESULTS

KEARNY SCHOOL DISTRICT  - INDEPENDENT WATER TESTING RESULTS

Tectonic Engineering & Surveying Consultants P.C. has completed the pilot sampling and analysis of potable water collected from multiple Point of Use (POU) points at a total of seven (7) Kearny Schools. The sampling was performed to verify the quality of drinking water provided to Kearny Schools, specifically the levels of lead. This initial pilot test was implemented as a recommended progressive approach in conjunction with public communication.

Sampling and analysis of drinking water points of use (POUs) for lead was performed by Kearny Board of Education (KBOE)  all district public schools in response to public concerns.

Based on the testing results, the levels of lead found in the water taken from all sample points did not exceed appropriate limits. The reported lead concentrations were compared to both the public water service AL and the schools-recommended CL value.

 

Lead was not detected above the recommended  AL  of  15 PPB  or the  CL of  20 PPB in

Any of the fourteen (14)  POUs from a total of seven (7) different facilities
