Music K-5 (Mrs. Sacolick)

Welcome to Music!

Hello! My name is Jenna Sacolick and I will be teaching music PreK-5. I’m originally from Columbus, Ohio and I have my Bachelor's degree in Music Education from Ohio State. I taught K-8 for 6 years at a Catholic school in Ohio before moving to the DC area. I'm excited to be here at St. Bernadette!

Screenshot 2018 10 10 at 4.01.57 PM

 

Students in PreK-5 will experience singing, dancing, playing classroom instruments, composing, listening to different styles of music, instruments of the orchestra, and much more! Click here for the full Diocese curriculum: Diocese of Arlington Music Curriculum

 

I will be using songs and games from the website www.musicplayonline.com.  Students can login to play with some of the available features from home.

Mission Statement

The community of Saint Bernadette Catholic School and Parish works together to form hearts and minds in Christ.

By fostering a love for lifelong learning, we develop the whole child through faith formation, service to others, and academic excellence to be leaders in our ever-changing world.

 

Middle School Music Curriculum

The music curriculum for middle school will include opportunities to create, perform, respond, and connect music to other subjects.  Much of the work will be done by the students during class time in both group and individual projects.  Homework will be rare. 

For additional details on the music curriculum see https://www.arlingtondiocese.org/Catholic-Schools/Music-Curriculum.pdf

and  http://www.nationalartsstandards.org/

 

Grades

Music grades will be determined by participation, attitude, and effort.  A grade of 2 indicates an excellent level of participation.  A grade of 3 indicates a student who went well above and beyond expectations in attitude, effort, and/or higher level thinking skills.  A grade of 1 indicates a student in need of assistance to be successful in music class and will be addressed through conferencing with the student, other teachers, administration, and parents.

3 = 90 to 100 %

2 = 80 to 89 %

1 = 70 to 79 %

x = below a 70 %
