Mrs. K's Music Corner
Wow! Year 5 for me here at Geist Elementary! I was talking to the 4th graders last month that some of them we've been together at GES for the same amount of time! We've already been doing all sorts of fun stuff in music class this year and some grade levels are already preparing for performances! If you ever have any questions or concerns. Don't hesitate to email me. That's the best way to get the quickest response. You can also message me through Canvas. I look forward to this school year and working with your student/s!
Veterans Day Performance
Veteran Slide Show
Every year GES puts together a slide show to honor our GES Veterans. If you know of a veteran that you would like to be honored, please send a picture with the name of the Veteran and which military branch they are/were in. And we'd love to include them in the slide show. If you sent a picture in last year, please just email the name and that you want to use the same information from last year. Please email all pictures to the following address: GESVeteranPics@gmail.com Pictures will be due November 1st. Thank you in advance!
Veterans Day Performance
We are really hoping to have some in-person performances. However with the pandemic and regulations constantly changing, we do not know what performances will look like until we get closer. We are currently preparing for the Veterans Day Performance in 3rd & 4th grades only. We hope to have some kind of performance November 11th. It could be in-person, zoomed live, and/or pre-recorded. Thank you for your patience & flexibility!
Veterans Day Speaking Part Auditions
All 3rd & 4th grade students will have the option to audition for a speaking part in the Veterans Day Performance. Auditions will be in person this year on October 13th at 7:10am. The speaking part audition can be found below or on Canvas.
2nd Grade Musical
2nd grade has already started practicing for the 2nd grade musical in December. The performance date still needs to be finalized but we're hoping for December 2nd. We are really hoping to have some in-person performances this year. However with the pandemic and regulations constantly changing, we do not know what performances will look like until we get closer. We hope to have some kind of performance on December 2nd. It could be in-person, zoomed live, and/or pre-recorded. Thank you for your patience & flexibility!
Canvas is used a lot for music classes especially grades that have performances. All practice materials can be found on Canvas so that students can practice from home. Seeing students every 5 weeks makes it very difficult to prepare for a performance but we're going to try anyway! Please encourage your student/s to practice from home on the weeks they do not have music class. Even if it's just 15 minutes a week. Thank you in advance for your help!
