I Read to the Principal.

The photo is of SB 5th graders Christopher and Landon who co-read the book, *Hip and Hop, Don't Stop*, to their principal, as part of the school's "I Read to the Principal" program. The book is about two unlikely friends, a turtle and a rabbit, who team up to compete in a Rap-Off Contest -- and win! Inspired by the book, the boys plan to write their own rap, and will work with their 5th grade classmates to plan a South Bay Rap-Off Contest.

South Bay Elementary School was transformed into a School of Rock thanks to an artist-in-residence program set up by the school’s Parent-Teacher Association.

During the week of Jan. 22-26, musicians from the School of Rock in Farmingdale pushed into all the K-5 general music classes to teach the students about the history of rock and roll, music, instruments and the lyrics to the choruses of several popular rock songs. On Jan. 26, South Bay students showed off their skills to family and friends when each grade performed a different rock song with the School of Rock band at the West Babylon Junior High School Performing Arts Center.
