Music Curriculum K-3

At Loma Portal, we are lucky enough to offer weekly music classes to each of our students.  This is something that many elementary schools cannot provide and we have our wonderful Parent Foundation to thank.  Our TK-3 music teacher is Mrs. Candy Szalay who has been with us for years.  Mrs. Szalay is a fabulous music teacher who prepares our students for regular performances and instills a love for music in each of our students!
