Music: The Sound of My Heart

Hello Brunswick Elementary!

Ms. Fishel and Mr. Cook want to give a big shout out to all of the students and staff who submitted pictures for our 2021 Music In Our Schools Month(R) project.  This year’s theme is “Music:  The Sound of My Heart” and we had over 80 people participate to make the video linked below.  BES has a long tradition of musical excellence both in the classroom and in our performing ensembles.  In music class, students engage in singing, learning about and playing instruments, moving to music, improvising, performing grade-level musicals and concerts, and even composing music.

Please join us next week for two music spirit days.  On Tuesday, March 23rd we invite you to dress as your favorite musician, and on Thursday, March 25th we invite you to wear your favorite music shirt, symbol, or instrument.  Thank you for helping us to celebrate Music in Our Schools Month and for supporting the music program at BES!

FCPS Challenges Program to Change Name

The Frederick County Public Schools Challenges Program will soon be changing its name to either Communication Connections or Expressions, and we would love your vote, and feedback, on the final selection.

The Challenges Program provides integrated support to students with autism and/or severe communication disorders.

A workgroup was organized to create a new moniker that would not only embody the purpose of the program, but would also evoke a sense of optimism associated with positive student outcomes. The group discussed many possibilities, settling on two names. The public is being asked to weigh in.

If you would like to vote for your preference, please visit the following weblink to do so:

Voting will close April 16.
