Thank you to the administration at P.S. 135Q and Mr. Papiewski for your encouragement to have the Character Education Program collaborate with the students who performed at the winter concert. I was lucky enough to collaborate with Mr. Papiewski’s music program. We talked about how our students are learning to appreciate how music can entertain, inspire, educate and influence. Looking at all the smiling faces in the audience gave off a feeling of peace and a sense of community. I’m looking forward to inspiring our students to think about ways they can use music to solve problems educate and create a calm peaceful world.
