East Hills School Song!

Dear 2nd Graders,
Here are the lyrics for the East Hills School Song!  Have a great time singing it at home!:)

East Hills School Song

There’s a great place in Roslyn,
It’s called the East Hills School.
We’re the young generation, America’s future,
Our teachers are really cool.

As we walk through our halls
With our minds open wide,
It’s the East Hills School,
That makes our faces beam with pride.

Respect and honesty,
Values that we learn.
This is how it’s meant to be,
‘Cause we are the East Hills family,
We are the East Hills family.

Peace and love and harmony,
This is our true test,
Building friendships to last a lifetime,
Roslyn Bulldogs are the best.

Respect and honesty,
Values that we learn.
This is how it’s meant to be,
‘Cause we are the East Hills family,
We are the East Hills family.

 East Hills School.
East Hills School.
East Hills School.
East Hills School.


5th Grade Song Writing Contest!

As we spoke about during your music classes, we are having a SONG WRITING CONTEST!  Use the rules I gave you to help you create an amazing winter themed variation of our old friend "Hayride." 

Some 5th graders told me that it would be helpful to not just have the lyrics of "Hayride" (which are on the contest rules sheet too) but to also have access to the melody.  Here are two videos: the first is Part 1 of "Hayride," the second video is part 2.  I hope they are helpful as you create your winter variations!

I am so excited to read and sing your variations.  Please have your songs to me by October 14, 2014 so there is time to choose the winning variation as well as teach the winning song to the 5th grade chorus to perform at the Winter Concert!

"Hayride"  Part 1
"Hayride" Part 2

Welcome back to a brand new year at East Hills School!   I am so excited to be soon beginning our chorus rehearsal with 4th and 5th graders.   If you are interested in singing in chorus this year please fill out and return the bottom portion of the letter that your classroom teacher will (or has!) given you.  This will ensure that I have enough copies of the music for all interested students.

5th Grade Chorus will meet on Wednesday mornings beginning Wednesday, September 24.
4th Grade Chorus will meet on Thursday mornings beginning Thursday, October 2.  

All rehearsals begin at 8:10 AM.  Drop off is at the cafeteria door.  The doors will open at 8:05.

If you need to take the bus to our chorus rehearsal please call transportation at 801-5190 for information.

I am looking forward to a wonderful year of making music!
