February 16, 2016
Kim Vann and Phyllis Kirkland attended TMEA last week - (Elementary/Intermediate) - Mrs. Vann says, "My students have been using Quaver online curriculum to learn music skills. We have been working on playing recorders for the past several weeks...They play along with a soundtrack and the notes are highlighted as they play." How exciting that they were able to actually meet Graham Hepburn..."Our kids are going to be so excited! We got to meet Graham Hepburn otherwise known as "Quaver" from our music curriculum. The kids love him. He makes learning music fun and exciting!" And...Diboll ISD is listed on the front of Quaver's flyer! (See collage below!! SO COOL!)
