San Gabriel Unified District was recently recognized by the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation (NAMM) as a Best Communities for Music Education district. Jefferson Middle School orchestra director Esther Minwary discusses the District’s TK-12 pipeline of music education, the Music Immersion Experience program, and what she has learned from students in her classroom.

For nearly 15 years, Monrovia Unified School District has staged the Monrovia Elementary Olympics, a one-day track and field competition that features 150 fourth- and fifth-grade students from all five District elementary schools. Wild Rose School of Creative Arts teacher and event founder Dana Elliott joins Wild Rose students Joshua Menlove and Amirah Sorra to discuss school spirit and how physical education brings out the best in students.
