Our cable provider likes to warn us that we might experience television outages. They explain that it is not their fault, though. As the path of the sun gets higher, solar radiation could interfere with their satellite. It’s those pesky heavenly bodies … what can one expect a cable company to do?Depending on the quality of the television show, you might not even notice the outage. But having more sun during the day could cause unconstrained feelings of joy and the desire to jump in the air and click your heels. I know for me it means more quality time with the horses, chickens and our barn cat.
The chorus and marimba students at the Remsenburg-Speonk Elementary School recently filmed a short video featuring the New York Lottery’s theme song, “Thank You For Being A Friend.” This is the song written by Andrew Gold and made popular by the classic television series “The Golden Girls.”
The top finalists will win money for their school’s music program. Good luck, kids, and a special thanks to our director of music, Michelle Quigg, who organized this program!
Congratulations to our local students who were chosen to perform at the All County Music Festival hosted by the Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association. This annual festival is held so that our students can perform with the best musicians in the area. Students make friends from other schools and learn skills associated with group performances. The students practice several selections and come together for three long rehearsals before the final concert.
Cole Federico and Braelene Owen, both students at our elementary school, played their clarinets for the performance. Five of our chorus students—Joey DeLeon, Grayson Fox, Carly Traynor, Lindsay Andreopoulos and Molly Skorobohaty—also performed. Great job, everyone.
