A Window into the Music Classroom!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been unable to hold our normally scheduled music programs. In order to allow your student their time to shine and let you see what we have been doing in the music classroom this year, we will be providing a “Window Into the Music Classroom!”
This week, we started recording some of our favorite singing games, drumming, xylophone pieces, and movement activities that we’ve done throughout the school year. As you can imagine, this will be more informal than previous years since we have been unable to gather and perform in large groups. However, we are so excited to have this opportunity to showcase our learning in the midst of a pandemic!
During the last week of April, you will receive an email with a link to view the completed video, providing you with a glimpse into our music room! Click on this link for a preview of what's to come!

Elementary Instrumental Music Celebration Concerts!
Band and String Families, we are excited to announce our district wide end of the year celebration concerts! Each performer may have 4 guests in attendance with them at these events! Info about safety requirements and practices will be sent home as the dates approach. Please add the appropriate date and time for your student to your family calendars and reserve the night for this event! We can not wait to gather together for a live performance to celebrate all that these students have accomplished as musicians throughout this unprecedented year!
