Because of the combined grade classrooms, I learned how to get help from my classmates when I didn’t understand something, and later how to be an eager but patient teacher. KMS Alumna, 2009 (Elementary Graduate 2007)
Music, Movement & Dance
KMS students have Music, Movement and Dance classes every week, taught by Ms. Georgi Schmitt, a nationally recognized children’s musician and music educator.
Ms. Georgi has Montessori training and is a certified Orff music instructor. She is also a yoga teacher and a world-dance aficionado, so she brings all of this to her work with our students.
KMS Primary students have music, movement, and dance for 30 minutes each week in small groups. The classes are designed to engage students’ minds and bodies through a combination of singing, dancing, doing yoga, and playing a variety of instruments.
KMS Elementary students have a full hour of music, movement, and dance each week. In addition, the 3rd-5th grade students have another hour during which they learn to read music and play the recorder. During the rest of the week, practicing their music is a lesson option for the Elementary students as well.
