    Música y Merienda

    Happy day everyone! THIS Friday, from 12-12:45pm, 'Música y Merienda' returns to campus with “Calaverita Boogie October” with none other than, Grammy Award winning recording artists, La Santa Cecilia. They are currently nominated for “Best Cumbia Album”, so you can expect to dance to those rhythms along with bossa-nova, rumba, boleros, tango, jazz, and more. La Santa Cecilia’s sound reflects their personal ancestries, influences, and above all, the city we all call home: Los Angeles.

    We are also excited to be able to extend an in-person invitation to our parents and caretakers to come listen and experience 'Música y Merienda' along with our students. In order to make “Calaverita Boogie” a success, we just ask that you follow a couple of rules: 1. enter through the main entrance, 2. check in at the office, and 3. stay stay within our designated ‘parent and caretaker area’ on the day of the event.

    As always, the performance will also be live-streamed via their dedicated Instagram account, instagram
    Give them a ‘follow’ to stay up-to-date with everything that is, Música y Merienda- our Atwater Elementary monthly tradition that all of our students have come to know, love, and look forward to.

    MyM is powered by parent volunteers and personal donations through our Friends of Atwater Elementary Organization. If you would like to help keep the música playing, consider donating via friendsofatwaterelementary, and note “música y merienda”. You can also email, with any comments or inquiries- they would love to hear that you too support this program.

    ¡Feliz dia a todos! ESTE viernes, de 12-12:45pm, 'Música y Merienda' regresa a nuestra escuela con “Calaverita Boogie octubre”. Nadie más, ni nadie menos que ganadores de premio Grammy, La Santa Cecilia estará tocando. Ahorita están nominados de nuevo en la categoría “Mejor Album de Cumbia” así que esperen poder bailar a esos ritmos tanto como a la bossa-nova, rumba, boleros, tango, jazz, y más. La Santa Cecilia tiene un sonido que refleja sus propias herencias, influencias, pero sobre todo, a nuestra cuidad de, Los Ángeles.

    Estamos alegres de poder extender una invitación a nuestros padres y guardianes para asistir en persona a esta función y escuchar y disfrutar a 'Música y Merienda’ con nuestros estudiantes. Para asegurarnos que “Calaverita Boogie” sea un éxito, les pedimos que sigan unas cuantas reglas: 1. llegar por la entrada principal, 2. registrarse en la oficina, 3. mantenerse en el ‘espacio de padres y guardianes’ el día del evento.

    Como siempre, la tocada será transmitida en-vivo por el instagram dedicado de MyM, instagram. Síganlos para estar al tanto de todo lo que hay que ver con 'Música y Merienda’, nuestra tradición mensual en Atwater Elementary que nuestros estudiantes han llegado a conocer, querer, y anticipar.

    MyM esta hecho posible por el esfuerzo de padres voluntarios y por donaciones personales a través de la organización Friends of Atwater Elementary. Si usted quiere apoyar y asegurarse que la música continúe tocando, considere una donación via friendsofatwaterelementary y escriba “música y merienda” en la nota. También puede escribir a con comentarios o preguntas. Les encantaría oír y saber que se les apoya con el programa.
