It was raining outside Eastwood Elementary School, but inside was all music and sunshine.

Music teacher Margo Trinter told assembled parents how 30 years ago, the Music in Schools Program was introduced across the county; today it’s recognized in every state. At Eastwood, music is part of a well-rounded education.

Kindergartners started with “Grandma’s Song,” using whistling and singing to make low or high sounds using the DeLa Croix skills they learned from a recent artist-in-residence. First-graders joined in with sign language and second-graders sang in Spanish.

The afternoon program concluded with the entire student body joining in the Eastwood school song.
