View music resources here:
(Use your student ysd7.org account to access files)
The link above contains a folder for grades K-2 and another folder for grades 3-5.
A selection of kids songs to sing along to.
Four recorder lesssons. Each lesson is in its own folder.
Instructions- Open the music book (PDF file) and find the song you want to play/learn. Print out the page or download a copy of it to play along with. Then minimize the PDF page ( _ ) and open the mp3 file for the song. Start the mp3 and start counting when the music starts as that is your introduction. While you are counting, open the music book back up ( _ ) and play along.
Good Luck! And above all, have fun while you learn.
P.S. You could print out select pages of the 4 books! Then you would only need to open the MP3's. That would even be easier than opening and closing the books! ;-)>

RE: OSPI Reopening Guidance Released
Dear YSD Families and Staff,
Thank you for your flexibility as we work to provide a quality education during the COVID-19 global pandemic. I know that the situation has been challenging, and I am thankful for your resourcefulness, dedication, and care for our young learners.
The much-anticipated guidelines for returning to school in the fall were just released by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). These recommendations were developed in close collaboration with the state Department of Health and Governor Inslee’s office.
The Yakima School District will thoroughly review the guidelines and work with our leadership team to develop a local reopening guide for our schools. This will be influenced by the state’s recommendations but also may have some unique components. We anticipate sharing this reopening guide with you and with our community the week of July 6.
As you know, this is uncharted territory and there will be some elements of the guide that will need to be worked out along the way. We appreciate your patience as we navigate this process and promise to stay in close communication with you moving forward.
I hope you continue to stay safe and healthy. We will be in touch soon with more information.
Trevor Greene, Superintendent
