  Instead of ‘Baby Bach,’ Franklin School in Summit has implemented a kind of ‘Elementary Bach’ in the classroom with help from an SEF grant: ‘Classical Music in the Classroom.’ Pictured is Charlotte Whitcher, third grader at Franklin School in Summit. (courtesy photo)Independent Press  Instead of “Baby Bach,” Franklin School in Summit has implemented a kind of “Elementary Bach” in the classroom with help from an SEF grant: “Classical Music in the Classroom.” This program is the brainchild of Susan Yarad, a parent, and third grade teacher, Kate Polles. Their initiative has brought classical music to every classroom at Franklin School. A set of three CDs from Philips Classics Production-Bach for Breakfast, More Mozart for Your Mind, and Debussy for Daydreaming–was supplied to each classroom. So far it has gotten overwhelmingly good reviews from students, teachers and parents. Yarad elaborates about the objective of the program: “Here in Summit our students have access not only to school music classes, but many also participate in after school music lessons and programs.

“Yoga in the PARCC” will be offered to students in grades 3, 4 and 5 during their PE classes.  This will take place the week prior to standardized testing days (2/23 – 2/27) to help students develop a better understanding of Yoga as a whole. Parent Volunteers (who are certified yoga instructors) will co-teach alongside of Mrs. Burr during this event. Physically, Yoga is beneficial to children because it improves flexibility and strength. Mentally, it helps improve focus and alleviate stress.  We hope teachers, parents and most importantly our students find this unit to be helpful not only during testing but as a lifelong activity.
