November 29, 2023

Valley Stream UFSD Thirteen recently took part in the annual PEAK (Parents, Educators, and Kids) Music Festival, a one-day event dedicated to fostering a love for music among fourth-grade students across Nassau County.

“We are incredibly proud of our students who participated in the PEAK Music Festival,” said Dr. Judith LaRocca, Superintendent of Valley Stream UFSD Thirteen. “It is a wonderful opportunity for them to explore their musical talents and share their love for music with their peers and parents.”

The festival, held at Freeport High School, saw participation from 24 students across all four schools in Valley Stream UFSD Thirteen. The day was filled with engaging workshops such as world music drumming, a musical escape room, and a ukulele jam session.

The PEAK Music Festival is a unique opportunity for students and their parents to immerse themselves in music, learn new skills, and share their talents. The day culminated in a final performance where students and parents came together to perform for one another, celebrating their music-making achievements.
