15 Questions to Replace "How Was School Today?"

Check out this article: There are some great ideas to help communicate with your student and learn about their day.

Music News

We are glad to be back making music with our wonderful Carlin C. Coppin students. Our patriotic song of the month is This Land is Your Land, by Woodie Guthie, and our composer of the month is Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Continue reading for more specifics about each grade level.

CHOIR is for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders and started on Monday, September 9th. We still have a few open spaces, so if you have a singer for a student, please encourage them to join us from 1:50-2:50 each Monday in the music room. We have many performances and activities this year. A permission slip (click here) is required to join, and students must commit to be an enthusiastic member all year. For more information go to:

If you have any questions contact Mrs. Guemmer at

BAND is for 4th and 5th grade and starts this Thursday, September 5th at First Street School in Room 1 from 3:15-4:30pm, parents and students are welcome. Band rehearsals will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. For more information, please contact Mr. Medina at

1st Grade: Our youngest grades are starting out the year learning many songs, including the Hello Song, Tisket a Tasket, Hickety Tickety, Oats Peas Beans, Rig a Jig Jig, and Looby Loo . They will continue to learn classroom procedures, as well as concepts such as keeping the beat, dynamics (loud/soft), and basic rhythms.

2nd Grade: The second graders will be reviewing songs and procedures from 1st grade. They are also learning some new songs and games, such as Se Se Se and Kye Kye Kule. We will be reviewing concepts like keeping the beat and working more with basic rhythms.

3rd Grade: The third graders are reviewing many of their old songs and games from the last couple of years. They are also learning some new ones, such as Puncinella, Rocky Mountain, Beat Detective, and Uncle Joe. They are preparing to learn more advanced rhythm and pitch skills.

4th Grade: Our fourth graders are also reviewing old songs, games and procedures. They have been playing Beat Detective and singing rounds, such as Are You Sleeping. Soon we will begin a unit called “Mallet Madness,” in which they will be learning to play more advanced percussion instruments.

5th Grade: In addition to reviewing and learning a few new songs and games (Beat Detective), the fifth graders are starting a ukulele unit in September! Our wonderful volunteers from Ukes for Schools will be coming into our classes to help tune the ukuleles and assist with instruction. The ukulele is a versatile and relatively easy string instrument to learn, and our district has adopted it as a part of our music curriculum. The 5th graders are invited to play a few songs in a sing-a-long portion of our Winter Concert on Tuesday, December 3rd at 6:00 PM! Please contact Mrs. Guemmer if you have any questions about our study of the ukulele!

Support School Safety

Morning Procedures
Please remember that supervision for students begins at 7:45am. There is no supervision for students prior to that. Please plan your mornings accordingly, we want our students to be safe!

Parking & Drop Off

Please note that parking is at a premium, particularly now that we have so many new families who joined us this fall. If you are arriving early and waiting with your child in your car, please consider parking along the street to ensure our staff can find parking when they arrive.

It is essential that you pull all the way forward in the drop off lane so that we can get all of our cars/kiddos into the drop off zone and then out of their car in a safe and efficient manner. When there are no buses in the drop off area, please pull all the way forward. You may drop off in the bus area after the buses leave. This will create more room for everyone to move through safely.

Entering Campus

If you are walking your child onto campus and plan to go past the big, black gate, you must sign in at the front office and obtain a visitor badge to be on campus. Remember to sign out when you leave as well. This helps us to account for everyone that is on campus.
