The band will participate in the mass band concert at 7 p.m. May 3 at Skyview High School. Inspirational musicians from Tustumena, Kalifornsky Beach and Sterling elementary schools will integrate their talents into this melodious performance.
Volunteers are to be honored during a school assembly Friday celebrating "School Volunteer Recognition Week." Across America, volunteers will be recognized for their contribution toward the educational success of our youth.
Under the direction and guidance of Ms. Biggs, Tustumena's fifth- and sixth-grade students are becoming proficient with the hand bells while the second-, third- and fourth-grade students are tooting happily on their recorders. To further enhance the curriculum, Ms. Biggs offered discounted recorders to students for at-home practice in an effort to further develop the passion for music.
PE is not Physically Exhausting for the students at Tustumena, due to Mr. Chase's instruction throughout the year. Presidential physical fitness testing has started with the onset of spring. Testing components include push-ups and pull-ups to test upper body strength, curl-ups for abdominal strength, shuttle run for quickness and agility, V-sit stretch for flexibility, and a one-mile run for endurance (cardiovascular fitness). The students are striving to get 85 percent on all tests for the Presidential Award or 50 percent for the national award, which will be given out at the awards assembly at the end of May.
