The Bonne Ecole Elementary choir is made up of hard working 5th and 6th grade students. In choir, students are instructed in proper singing techniques for individual and ensemble singing, music theory, as well as rehearsal and performance etiquette. This group of vocalists will meet on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays during their Fine Arts block and specific Wednesday after school rehearsals. These young musicians are passionate about music and choose to express themselves through their voices! This fall, you can hear their beautiful voices at the Veteran's Day Program, and at the Christmas concert!

The St. Tammany Parish Strings Program works with students individually and as a group to teach young string players the fundamental skills they need to learn and grow as musicians. Our string program is based on the Suzuki Method, a teaching system that emphasizes listening skills, daily practice, and most importantly, parental involvement. Dr. Shinichi Suzuki envisioned the parent learning along with the child, creating and environment that motives and inspires student achievement. Millions of children around the world have learned to play and enjoy music through the Suzuki Method, including Bonne Ecole’s string instructor, Joseph Cieslak. Mr. Cieslak will be teaching lessons at Bonne Ecole every Wednesday and Thursday, giving students the opportunity to take a violin or viola lesson once a week for 30 minutes. We are happy to be able to provide this service for our students, because the opportunity to play music is essential to a child’s education. Learning a musical instrument teaches children to think more critically and creatively, making music the ideal supplement to all academic courses.
Library club is a group of 5th and 6th grade students who volunteer to help in the Library during Fine Arts. Library Club students help with organization and management of library materials, such as checking in books, shelving them, organizing magazines and periodicals, and other school materials.
