Music key part of 4-K program

Students in the 4-year-old kindergarten program at Hillcrest Primary School have a leg up on reading thanks to the school's evolving music program.

Started last year, the pre-kindergarten music lessons have been very successful, music teacher Craig Pynenberg said.

"We started up the program to give the kids a head start with learning literacy concepts such as nursery rhymes, letters and print," Pynenberg said. "When kids participate in music, it helps to build their spacial reasoning and their cognition, which will get them ready for reading."

<b>Shawano Community High School</b><br /><br /><!-- 1upcrlf2 -->Members of the Astronomy Club got together after school to analyze data from the district's magnetometer. Members were taught the science behind the magnetometer signatures that are generated every day and then calculated the Kp index for each day the data was generated. Kp indices tell the strength of a solar storm. Now that they know how to gather the data, members will continue the data collection daily and teach other interested students how to read the magnetometer signatures.
