All grades will have a hands-on music class once a week to encourage an appreciation of a wide variety of musical styles. Music classes will incorporate listening, moving, singing and performing. Many music classes throughout the year will coordinate with the lessons that the students are studying in their classrooms. Also included in the music curriculum will be Catholic hymns and seasonal Mass music. All students will be graded on participation and effort.
