Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year from Kimberly Robles, Angela Greer and Mona Ghodsi! We are the 4th/5th grade music teachers working in Ocean View School District. Our music program at OVSD is designed in accordance with the Visual Performing Arts Content Standards for California Public Schools. This allows every student the opportunity to discover their musical gifts and experience the joy of making music. To accomplish this, your student will be taking part in a variety of musical activities this year, including singing, playing classroom instruments, composing, listening and dance/movement. For those students who are in our 5th grade classes and 4/5 combo classes, they will have the opportunity to play the soprano recorder. In the spring, all 4th and 5th grade students will participate in a culminating performance for family and friends. This gives the students the opportunity to demonstrate some of what they have been learning in music class.
