                State standards and research shows music improves
                student’s learning of math concepts

         the goals continue from last year as it is still a need for the

                improve.
                   1. Could be due to the fact that science is not sent
                       home for homework
                   2. ELAC members suggested sending home the
                       science parent letters so families know what is
                       happening in the classroom in science.
