R-7 students with special needs participate in music and movement activity

July 3, 2013 

Students in the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District extended school year program were recently able to express themselves through the universal language of music using movement, instruments and props with Karian Hayes and Hannah Morgan from Gymboree Play and Music of Lee’s Summit.

The music and movement program provided many benefits to the students, such as relating to others, working as a team, expressing themselves through movement, balance, flexibility, motor planning, and coordination.

The extended school year program is designed for students with special needs and provides additional learning opportunities during the summer.
