Dear Harris Elementary 3rd Grade Families,

Gilbert Public Schools

Harris Elementary

Music Department

As you know, your 3rd grader is participating in the Harris Elementary Winter Program! Your student has been working really hard all year to prepare for this concert and we can’t wait to perform for you! We are hoping this letter home will answer any questions you may have and alleviate any concerns you may have.

Date: Thursday, December 9th, 2021

Where: Our elementary concert will be held in the Harris Elementary Multi-purpose Room at 5:30 PM.

Entering the Building: Please enter the building through the double doors of the gym. There will be signs on the door for you to enter. Students will make their way to the general music room.

Drop Off: Please drop your child off by 5:10 PM so they may have time to warm-up and practice their songs.

What Do I Wear:

  • Boys: a plain red or green shirt with no writing and blue jeans or dress pants

  • Girls: a plain red or green shirt with no writing and blue jeans. Girls also have the option to wear a red or green dress.

If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!

What Does It Mean To Be A Title I School?

Title I is the largest federal aid program for public schools. Schools can be designated as “Title I” if certain criteria are met. Title I is the federal government’s commitment to closing the achievement gap between low-income and moderate to high income students. These funds are used to help all students meet academic standards. Click the links below to learn more!
