Everyone is working hard and having fun completing our year!
K3 and K4 have been reading/singing/saying the terrific book Mortimer, singing silly songs, and playing Lummi Sticks.
K5 finished the Carnival of the Animals unit and is preparing their graduation music.
1st and 2nd grade also finished up the Carnival of the Animals. We prepared to sing America the Beautiful for the Memorial Day ceremony, and now we are learning folk dances and silly songs.
3rd and 4th grade are back on their recorders to finish off the year, using what we learned this winter to spring into new notes and melodies.
5th and 6th grade received a choice between boomwhackers and folk dancing after finishing their intensive Jazz unit and Personal Playlist Project, and they each chose differently–5th grade on boomwhackers and 6th grade chose dance.
7th grade is continuing their acoustic guitar study. This week we are trying to expand our chords to playing D, G and A Major chords. Mrs. Hawkins wants us to be able to play “Wild Thing” before the end of the year.
8th grade has lots cooking in preparation for their graduation festivities on Wednesday, June 7th. They voted on what they wanted to include in their send-off, and now they are working to make it happen! But I’m not giving anything away…

Hello! My name is Mrs. Hawkins and I am the new-to-you music teacher at St. Lucy’s. I’m so excited to be here. My husband, my son, and our dog moved to Wisconsin recently although I am originally from the Midwest. I grew up in DeKalb, IL and then studied music performance and education at Northwestern University (near Chicago). I’ve been teaching music in schools since 2005, and I love it. I sing, and play violin, piano, guitar, and recorder. I especially love cantoring at Mass, and singing musical theatre, R&B/gospel, and jazz/blues.
I can hardly wait to meet everyone in the St. Lucy’s community–so far you have all been terrific and very welcoming. Thanks for making this quick transition so much easier with your kindness. I look forward to our year together, and if I haven’t met you yet, I look forward to doing so very soon.
Sincerely, Mrs. Hawkins
