Who says learning only takes place Monday through Friday? On a recent Saturday, eighteen third grade students from the Locust Valley Central School District participated in the ninth annual “PEAK Festival” sponsored by the Nassau Music Educators Association (NMEA) and the N.Y. State School Music Association (NYSSMA). 

The festival gave students an opportunity to participate in musical activities including musical movement, improvisation, dancing, drumming and choral singing. The day culminated in an informal concert given by all participants for parents and friends.  The students were selected by their music teachers, Mrs. Jane Benstock and Mrs. Christine Hujber, for their musical abilities and enthusiasm. Thanks to Mrs. Benstock and Mrs. Hujber for taking time out of their Saturday to enrich these young musicians!
