• Hi RSE Students! 

    We made it to the last week of school!  I think most of you know now that I am retiring this year.  I will miss you all so much.  I hope you have learned some things in music class and that you have enjoyed our music songs and activities.  Please email me to say goodbye if you haven't done so.  Love, Dr. Walker

    5th Grade Fine Arts Presentation   

    May 11:  Here's a fun music/science activity for you--a musical xylophone made with glasses and water. Fill 7-8 glasses with different amounts of water.  You can add food coloring to the water for more fun. Use a spoon to tap the glasses and make a song.  The more water you put in a glass the lower the pitch will be.
