Music Room

Ms. Swanson's class playing drumsWelcome to the Poinsettia Elementary Music Room. Here at POI we love music. All students TK - 5th grades go to music once a week for 45 minutes! Kids love this opportunity to explore a variety musical instruments and learn music fundamentals. 

A wealth of research has proven that studying music can have a profound impact on student achievement across a range of subjects–from reading to math and more. TK-5 music instruction is made possible by the generous funding of the Carlsbad Education Foundation. Thank you CEF!!!

DRUMS! DRUMS! DRUMS!

Thanks to the Museum of Making Music and the Carlsbad Education Foundation, Poinsettia students had the wonderful opportunity to play percussion from all over the world!  Ask you student about tubanos, djembes, gankoquis or shekeres.  We had a blast with all the world percussion instruments through the month of September!
