The district’s prekindergarten students performed for the first time on stage during Brookhaven Elementary School’s prekindergarten Spring Sing, held on May 3 for parents and faculty. Principal Dr. Rebecca Raymond explained that this annual tradition is a chance for the students to celebrate the end of the school year with their families and to show how much they have grown academically and socially during the year. 

Under the direction of teachers Karen Ernst, Kim Lampert and Dawn Sackman, the students sang seven tunes including “America the Beautiful,” “ABC Rock,” “Scat Like That,” “Tiny Tim,” “Take Me Out to the Ballgame,” “Baby Shark” and “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah.” Each song was carefully choreographed with minimal props, and select students announced each of the musical selections.

Dr. Raymond noted that the pre-K spring sing ties into the district’s literacy program in that the students learned how to connect language to song. During their practices, the students also learned tempo, beat and performance skills that will last a lifetime.
