All 4th and 5th grade students at Hurst Hills are learning to play the recorder using Recorder Karate as the main resource. Many of our students this year have achieved several belts by performing corresponding songs for each of the 9 belts.
Congratulations to 5th graders Willow S. and Ryan L. for the prestigious honor of earning their Recorder Karate Black Belt s. They had to perform 9 songs/9 belts with the score of 90 or higher to receive this honor. The black belt song was Beethoven's "Ode to Joy".
|| Congratulations to Angilee C.!! She has set the record by becoming first 4th grade student EVER to earn the Black Belt here at Hurst Hills Elementary. Not only that, but she received a perfect score for ALL 9 songs!!
