“Join a choir and a handbell choir.”
This is a part of the Sarah’s View Series.
I have been around music since I was young and I appreciate music. I love it. Any kind of music. I love music because it makes me feel relaxed and it calms me down. And singing I am smiling and having fun and enjoying myself. I like the sounds of the bell. The sounds make me feel happy.
I was surprised when I learned how to play. I liked it and I never thought of me playing in the bell choir. The sound of the bell is just joyful.
I feel honored to be a part of the bell choir because I can show other people what Stewart Home is all about. It’s about caring, and showing people what we are and what we do. I have never had that feeling before and it makes me feel special. It shows who I am and they get to enjoy the music. Music is important because it touches people’s hearts. I feel honored to be in the choir and to be heard through music because it touches their hearts and it makes them smile and feel good.
The movie “Music of the Heart” makes me feel so blessed that I can do anything like that, like sing in the choir. I like the movie because it is touching and it has a true meaning of music.

Stewart Home & School is one-of-a-kind community. Most special education programs end at age 21, and then adult settings focus on vocational options and daily living skills. Stewart Home & School assigns each person with special needs a special education plan in addition to goals for vocational placement, social maturity growth and daily living skills training. Working together with the student, his/her family and the school faculty, each plan is implemented on a year-round, three-semester basis and schedules are adjusted as needed.
