Music (Kindergarten - Grade 5)
We believe that music education in the elementary school is an important part of a successful school’s curriculum. Researchers continue to gather evidence supporting the benefits and positive effects of music education within our schools.
At Chute Lake Elementary we are fortunate enough to offer a guitar, ukulele and recorder program, as well as incorporate other pitched and non pitched instruments, such as, hand bells, barred Instruments (xylophones, metallophones and glockenspiels), boomwhackers, hand drums, bucket drumming, spoons and our brand new African drums.
K-5 CLE students experience music through movement, body percussion, voice, pitched and non pitched instruments.
Typically, Primary students prepare for an annual Christmas Concert and the Intermediate Musical takes place in the Spring.
