For the most part, Monday was business as usual for Quaker Valley Middle School students and staff--except that this wasn't your typical first day back to class.

He estimated about 98 percent of parents followed the correct driving patterns. “We really increased our walking and car riding population over here in Sewickley.

Sewickley students taking part in the Lisa Rae Music Studios' latest class will “travel” to countries with cultural roots in Western Pennsylvania.
Learning music is just like learning a language, according to Lauren Garcia-Slawianowski, a Hopewell Township resident and early-childhood music instructor. “I think we are born wanting to sing and dance,” said Slawianowski, who teaches music to children as young as 6 weeks old. “It’s kind of like when we raise a child in a bilingual family — children are able to speak two languages just because they’re exposed to it.

The course was developed by Lisa Rae Music Studios, the company that also brought the popular “Music …
