A Very Happy Hillside Holiday
On Thursday, December 13th, Hillside Elementary performed their 3rd annual "A Very Happy Hillside Holiday" singalong under the direction of music therapist Emily Minkow. Over 50 students sat on stage together and performed songs to celebrate various December holidays. While singing, dancing, playing instruments, and utilizing American Sign Language (ASL), these students strengthened multiple domain areas including motor, cognitive, and social-communication. This year, Hillside was excited to include the entire schools' students and staff, as well as family and friends in the audience. Additionally, the finale number "A Million Dreams" included singing from some of Mr. Murphy's 2nd grade students as all performers joined them with ASL. Hillside concluded the performance with a breakfast reception to celebrate this festive occasion.
