3rd-6th Grade Recorder Orders have been placed and we are anticipating the orders to come in the week of October 23 or sooner! Once received, Mrs. Peterson will distribute the orders to the student along with their order form to confirm what they are receiving. After orders are received, students will be required to bring their recorder and Recorder Karate books every week to Music class. Please email Mrs. Peterson if you have any questions or concerns about your child having a recorder to use in class.

2nd Grade Only Christmas show rehearsals have begun by listening to this year's show "How to Train Your Reindeer to Fly". It was such a hit last year, that we decided to perform it again this year! Students will receive scripts that include the songs and the script. Opportunity for students to try out for a speaking part will be available in the next week or two. Currently during Music class, we are listening to the recording, practicing songs, and letting Mrs. Peterson know what part students want to audition for. Trying out for a part is not mandatory. Everyone will be able to participate in the play regardless of speaking part or not.

K-6th Grade are still encouraged to participate on the website at home. Here are the Class Codes again and MUST be used in order to have access.
