Jenkintown Elementary School Vocal Music Department
Mission: To dedicate ourselves in providing a musical environment that will encourage the development of each child’s musical abilities, understanding and expression: through exploration, experimentation, exposure, and enrichment. It is imperative that all children have a positive experience within the elementary classroom; learning skills that will help them to grow socially, intellectually, emotionally and artistically.
