Minisink Valley Elementary Celebrates Music in Our Schools Month

March is Music in Our Schools Month (MIOSM) and MVES has kicked off the festivities by entering the New York Sings contest sponsored by the NY Lottery.

To further promote its mission for education, the Lottery has launched a statewide contest to provide students with an opportunity to win $10,000, $5,000 or $2,500 to benefit their school’s music education program. Named “New York Sings,”  the contest offers students the opportunity to film themselves singing their own interpretation of “Thank You For Being A Friend.” The top five finalists from all submissions received will have their videos posted on the New York Lottery’s Facebook page. The prize winners will be selected by the Lottery’s Facebook fans, thus ensuring that everyone has the chance to participate through submission or by voting for their favorites.

The MIOSM festivities continue throughout the month of March with Fun Musical Facts presented during the morning announcements, listening activities shared with classroom teachers and a poster/essay contest.  The celebration will culminate a special African Drumming and Dance assembly sponsored by the PTO.
