Let it Snow – by Jule Styne and Sammy Cahn
Oh, the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Man it doesn’t show signs of stoppin’
And I brought some corn for poppin’
The lights are turned way down low
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

When we finally kiss good-night
How I’ll hate going out in the storm
But if you really hold me tight
All the way home I’ll be warm

And the fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we’re still good-bye-ing
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, and snow

When we finally kiss good-night
How I’ll hate going out in the storm
But if you really grab me tight
All the way home I’ll be warm

Oh the fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we’re still good-bye-ing
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

About the Recorder Rocks!

At Laraway 4th and 5th grade students learn how to play the recorder, a simple wind instrument. Studying the recorder will help your child develop the ability to:

  • assemble the recorder
  • sit with proper posture
  • hold the recorder
  • produce good quality sound with proper breathing and articulation
  • read music notes on the staff
  • keep a steady beat
  • count rhythms
  • play a variety of pitches (notes)
  • perform as part of an ensemble

Students who are new to recorder will focus on songs that include notes B, A, and G while those with experience will focus on songs that include notes high C, high D, B, A, G, F#, low E, low D and low C .

About the Ribbon System

Students must complete a series of playing and written assessments. Students that earn 90-100% on select assessments will receive a “ribbon”. The ribbons are then attached to a 4″ satin sash. At the end of trimester concert the sash is worn to display each student’s success. After the concert, it serves as a reminder of the hard work and effort it took to become such a learned musician!

4th Grade = BLUE sash / 5th Grade = BLACK sash
