We want to give a big shout out to Lakeview Elementary Design Center and W.H. Oliver Middle School, both of which were awarded Music Makes Us education grants from the Nashville Singers. Check out the news release below.





Lakeview Design Center & Oliver Middle School Receive Music Education Grants from The Nashville Singers, Inc.


Nashville, TN - Lakeview Design Center and W.H. Oliver Middle School were each announced as recipients of a $500.00 Music Makes a Difference music education grant from Nashville Singers in May of this year. The formal presentation took place at the Nashville Singers annual Season of Harmony concert on November 17 at Hillsboro High School. 


Since being founded in November of 2008, the philanthropic mission of Nashville Singers has been to enrich lives through support of music education in our schools and the community. To support this mission, the chorus funds several programs, including a free singing lessons program entitled Acappella Academy, music education grants, middle and high school master classes, and the Educator of the Future college scholarship created for students pursuing a music education degree.


Upon hearing the announcement, Carol Crittenden, Visual and Performing Arts Coordinator for Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS) remarked, "The Nashville Singers have not only been an incredible financial support for grant recipients in Metro Schools, but the members have also given of their time and talents to support our music students. This is the type of commitment and partnership we greatly value."



Jay Steele, Associate Superintendent for MNPS High Schools added, "A rich curriculum that includes the arts is very important for all students in Nashville and MNPS is very fortunate to have such supportive partners like the Nashville Singers."



Kim Marie Folsom of Lakeview Design Center stated, "I am so thankful for the Nashville Singers, who provide help for students in need, through music education. They realize that music teaches math, language, history, reading and science in a fun environment. I am so grateful for their support."



Franklin J. Willis of Oliver Middle School added, "The Oliver Middle School community advocates in the importance of music education in students' lives. Receiving this award not only serves as monetary gain to fund the new chorus program, but motivation to meet the challenge of engaging students in finding their own voice through music. It is truly an honor to be a recipient of the Nashville Singer's Music Makes a Difference Grant. I look forward to future collaborations with Nashville Singers and the Oliver Middle School Chorus."  


Other dignitaries on hand for the presentation and concert included Laurie Schell, Director of the Music Makes Us education project, Margaret Campbelle-Holman, Executive Director of Choral Arts Link, and Peter Bird, President and CEO of the Frist Foundation.

100 Chefs, 100 Schools was a huge hit with the young culinary students at Glengarry Elementary, and for good reason! The kindergartners in Shauna Russell’s class learned how to make fruit nachos. (And yes, they also ate them!). The class was selected to participate in the initiative that aimed to pair 100 chefs with 100 schools to promote healthy eating.


That wasn’t the class’s first encounter with a healthy lesson; early this fall they recorded a special song and dance that was named first runner-up in the Coordinated School Health program’s Classroom Challenge. The video competition was designed to promote healthy lifestyles.

The Encore classes at Dan Mills, Amqui, and Rosebank Elementary schools spent five weeks of this semester studying a unit called “Math on the Menu.” Led by Encore teacher Julie Delgado, the unit took them through a mock-journey of the opening for a family business, a Mexican restaurant. The students studied everything from menu groupings to floor plan possibilities for the actual restaurant building. At the end of the five weeks, the culminating activity was a Mexican fiesta complete with a "build-your-own-tostada" bar and restaurant decorations and Mexican heritage music. It was very rewarding to watch the students' interest heighten as we encountered each activity each week. The students said it was "really fun", the "tostadas were really good", and it was "better than a field trip!" Several had a great time creating the "decor for the restaurant." According to Delgado, “Encore is a wonderful program where we, teachers, get to teach ‘out-of-the-box’ material.”

Third and fourth grade students attending Cole Elementary in Antioch, Tn., and Kirkpatrick Enhanced Option in Nashville, recently proved that elementary students have what it takes to debate! Saturday, Jan. 28, both schools met to debate five topics on the campus of Vanderbilt University.  Under the guidance of their teachers, who served as debate team coaches, these newly inspired debaters argued the following issues:



  • elementary children should not be allowed to watch tv,

  • elementary children should not be allowed to carry cell phones on campus, 

  • public schools should not mandate school uniforms,

  • schools should implement year-round schools, and

  • states should not set age 12 as the legal age restriction for latch-key kids.


These young debaters have worked on learning the rules, researching their topics, and practicing speaking in public since late September and early October.  Each school set its own practice schedule.  Kirkpatrick students meet once a week after school, while Cole students meet twice a month on a Saturday.  The commitment shown by the children has been an inspiration to the coaches and volunteers that are guiding them.


A crowd of about 50 families, friends and teachers from each school gathered to watch the first debate.  Kirkpatrick won three of the five arguments of this inaugural event.  The next meeting between these two elementary schools will be on April 28 on the campus of Vanderbilt University.
