Reach for the Stars!!

REACH FOR THE STARS recording session
On Thursday at 9:00, we are going to launch our brand new Stevenson school song, "REACH FOR THE STARS" written by Mr. Miller, Ms. Rempel and Grade 4/5 students.  Since September, we've put in hours of song writing, instrument playing, studio editing and vocal training to make this happen.

We know this song will be sung and enjoyed for years to come.  Congratulations Stevenson!

Everyone at Stevenson

Raise your hands

And we can reach for the stars

Be a friend and we’ll go far….

Also, our silver medal choirs will be sharing their festival songs with the rest of the school on our Thursday assembly.  All are welcome.

Winnipeg Music Festival

Grade 4/5 singers at Westminster United

Congratulations the Grade 2/3 and Grade 4/5 choirs on their excellent singing at the Winnipeg Music Festival in the last 2 weeks.  They have certainly worked hard in preparing for the last 2 months and their efforts have paid off.  Both choirs received silver medals for their performances.  Well done!  We are proud of our work.  We are the singing school!

Thank you to Mrs. Hahn-Tomchuk for accompanying us.  As well, thank you to the many parent volunteers who joined us on these trips.  We appreciate you!

Feedback from another educator, "I was impressed through the whole performance at how focused and attentive the students were.   They were awesome."

On stage singing!

We had a guest conductor come in to our choir class to help us prepare for the festival.  We learned how to make 'Yes faces' and put some 'surprise in the eye.'  We learned that vowels and forming our words correctly are important to telling the story and getting the message across to our audience.
