Saint Benedict’s School - June 12, 2015
We would like to announce that the 3rd and 4th grade girls basketball team completed their season without losing a single game. Their undefeated season is an amazing feat. Over the past 17 years that I have been involved as a player and coach, this has not been accomplished. I also would like to give a special thanks to Head Coach Melissa Montalvo and Assistant Coach Veronica Aquino, two former basketball players of the program, for their hard work and dedication to developing this team into a strong team heading into the playoffs. Great job girls! Please keep your eyes on the school athletics page for playoff dates for all of our teams.

 Welcome to a brand new school year! This year, Grades 1-5 will be learning the recorder. They received the recorders today, as well as a clear cleaning stick, in a brown zippered pouch. They also received a "Recorder Explorer" workbook. 

Grades 1-5 all have their music classes on Fridays, so please be sure that on Thursday evening, they carefully pack the instrument in their book bags for their FRIDAY MUSIC CLASSES. Also, this is a wind instrument that is played with their mouths. In order to keep germ-sharing to a minimum, the children are absolutely forbidden to share their recorders with anyone. 

Finally, this is a real instrument, and not a toy. Please, make sure that your child is taking the best care of it, and not tossing it around. Their recorders can last a long time as long if they take care of it, and it is THEIR responsibility. 

They are so excited to learn this instrument, and I look forward to creating beautiful recorder music with them. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at jmercado@stbenedictsschool.com
