Kinder - Third Grade Music
Like other schools in the district, Stevenson PACT students in the early grades have music instruction through CSMA guest teachers, who hired by the district using funds raised by MVEF. Classes are integrated into the weekly schedule for classes, as arranged by teachers.
In the fourth grade, all students learn the recorder. This is also taught through CSMA teachers. Student participate in an end of the year concert.
In fifth grade, students have the choice to learn a musical instrument - both wind and string instruments. Teachers from CSMA come to school and conduct these lessons. For students who do not want to learn an instrument, they are able to take a CSMA-led art class as an alternative.
After School Music
Second through fifth graders have the option of joining the CSMA chorus class which is held on Thursdays after school. Students participate in two concerts: a holiday concert and an year-end concert that brings together the choruses from all of the elementary schools. This program is supported through funding from the PACT Foundation.
