Local music teacher and musical performer Greg Cooney will join us live on zoom to help chase those "stay-at-home blues."  Greg will entertain us with some fun music and show us how to make our own musical instruments at home. The instruments will come in handy as you and your family celebrate the New Year with your own music!  

 

A list of materials you might want to have available are: 

Any clean recyclable items paper towel tubes, cereal boxes, cardboard boxes, paper lunch bags, old metal spoons, paper or plastic plates or cups, plastic water bottles, clean food containers, jars with lids. 

 

Dry rice, beans, small stones, anything that makes a sound when put in a container.  

 

School Supplies Needed are: rubber bands, staples, tape, glue and safe scissors. 

As Greg says, if you drop it and hear a ring bring it with you and some string. 

Don't forget you can decorate your item if you have decorative paper or stickers! 

Basically look around your house for anything that combined with another object will make noise! Greg will be live on zoom and can see what you have in front of you and make suggestions for what you can do with the stuff you have already.  

 

Suitable for all ages even if you have two paper plates and a box of Cheerio's from preschoolers to adults! Program is also good for adults. Ms. Chris will also be participating with an assortment of items. Let's make music together to bring in a happy New Year. 

 

 

The Senate is in a standoff over unemployment benefits in the coronavirus relief package. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have spent hours grappling over dueling amendments for the weekly benefits that expire later this month. Both proposals change how long they would be extended for and reduce the number to 300-dollars, less than the 400-dollars the House approved.       The Biden administration is reportedly opening back up facilities that house migrant children to pre-coronavirus levels. CNN obtained an HHS memo citing extraordinary circumstances because of an influx of unaccompanied minors crossing the border. It's estimated there are nearly eight-thousand unaccompanied migrant children in border facilities.       The FDA is approving the first at-home coronavirus molecular test. The test doesn't require a prescription and provides results in 20 minutes. The FDA says it correctly diagnosed 96-percent of samples from those with symptoms.       One House Democrat is suing former President Trump over the Capitol attack on January 6th. California's Eric Swalwell has filed a civil suit accusing Trump of inciting the deadly riot at the Capitol. Swalwell argued the attack was an effort by angry Trump supporters to stop congressional ratification of the presidential election.        A lengthy investigation into sexual assault complaints at Louisiana State University shows the school intentionally made it complicated to report abuse. LSU President Tom Galligan called the report "painful" after it was made public today. The report found emails show LSU's athletic director wanted to fire former football coach Les Miles three years earlier than it did, over "inappropriate behavior" with student employees.       Twitter is considering adding an "undo send" option for paying users. It would give users a short window in which they could decide to withdraw a tweet before it posts. A Twitter spokesperson says it's part of a larger exploration into paid subscription models.
