Music Program for Second Semester: Very Important 4th Grade Teachers-REMINDER!!!

Mrs. Williams will only have 6 weeks to teach and put on the programs for Texas Public Schools Week. It will be very important for her to have the lab kids at TLC to teach the songs because this will be the ONLY time they can become familiar with them. Also, Tutoring pull-outs during this first six weeks during music time should be avoided. Since she only see them twice a week it is very difficult for them to learn the songs up to performance level if they are not present.

YEARBOOK PICTURES-UPLOAD NOW!!!!

PLEASE USE THE LINKS BELOW.

Please upload your pictures by when they were taken. This seems to be the easiest way for me to organize them into groups for the yearbook. I've given up on slideshow becasue very limited number of teacher upload picutres monthly. BUT my first yearbook deadline is quickly approaching and I NEED YOU TO UPLOAD THE PICTURES YOU HAVE NOW!!!!


MAKE SURE OF THE FOLLOWING:

**STUDENTS YOU UPLOAD CAN BE IN THE YEARBOOK.

**YOU HAVE THE PICTURES IN .JPG FORMAT (NOT .HEIC-this is the format many iphones use-follow directions below for conversion or to avoid taking in this mode.)


Settings > Camera > Formats > Most Compatible (see attached video). This will relieve you of the conversion step.


Or watch this 30 second video. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1y_oyIO3NMqZoo9EtQGrk7z7RwdAJ_lAr/view?usp=sharing
