Making Music on the Ukelele
Our fourth grade students are kicking off the year learning the basics of songwriting through the popular genres. To understand more about rock and pop, students listened to a variety of songs from The Beatles. Students then learned A minor 7, C major, and F major chords and jammed together as a class on the ukelele. The class is ready to rock on to a great year in music!
Show Your Spirit—At Friday Night Lights!
Students and families, faculty, alumni, and friends are invited to show your Belmont Day pride and support the girls' and boys’ varsity soccer teams at Friday Night Lights. This annual classic features our varsity soccer teams playing a full game against the Meadowbrook teams.
The school will provide light appetizers—cheese, crackers, hummus, and vegetables—for the picnic. Families are also welcome to bring food of their own.
