CRMS Morning Announcements – April 13, 2021
Jazz Appreciation Month (fondly known as "JAM") was created by the Natural Museum of American History in 2001 to recognize and celebrate the extraordinary heritage and history of jazz for the entire month of April. JAM is intended to stimulate and encourage people of all ages to participate in jazz - to study the music, attend concerts, listen to jazz on radio and recordings, read books about jazz, and more.
Miles Dewey Davis III (May 26, 1926 – September 28, 1991) was an American trumpeter, bandleader, and composer. He is among the most influential and acclaimed figures in the history of jazz and 20th-century music. Davis recorded several albums with his sextet during the 1950s, including Porgy and Bess and Kind of Blue, his final album of the decade, released in 1959. Now considered one of the greatest jazz albums ever recorded, Kind of Blue is credited as the largest-selling jazz album of all time, selling more than 2 million copies.
April is Autism awareness month:
Did you know that in 2020 it was reported that 1 in 54 children in the US is diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder?
1 in 34 boys identified with Autism and 1 in 144 girls identified with Autism
Boys are 4 times more likely to be diagnosed than girls.
Each of us learns differently. Celebrate your learning, think about others and open your mind to diversity.
