Happy New Year!!! I would like to extend a special welcome to all of our new families at Chapman and hope that you have a wonderful experience here.. All the children will participate in a variety of musical activities as we become critical thinkers and creative learners. In these winter months we honor Dr. Martin Luther King and the contributions of many Black Americans that have made our world a better place. All the children will participate in a drumming unit on tubanos and djembes. As part of our focus on social and emotional will being of our students, we continue to work on caring for our classmates and showing kindness and empathy. We are singing and talking about how artists and musicians can influence people to be kind. I look forward to working with all of your children.
