We are reaching out to ask you to take part in our school district questionnaire. Your participation is essential in helping us form a more complete picture of technology use for learning in our students’ lives. Please know that all of your responses will remain anonymous to protect your privacy and they will help your child's school choose the right technology for their classrooms. It will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.


The last day to complete this questionnaire is Friday, April 19th.



*For parents with multiple children, please complete one survey for each child


Thank you for taking part in this important initiative!

KINDNESS

We've been talking a lot about being kind at our school. About if we put kindness at the very center of all that we do and say we'll create a school we want to come to every day. It's not magic, and we're in charge...everyone is.

5th Grade Families Only

Middle School Music Sign-Ups 2019


Attention Fifth Grade Parents:


We are thrilled that your son or daughter participated in the elementary band, orchestra, and/or chorus this school year! In order for us to arrange students' sixth grade schedules at Indian Valley Middle School or Indian Crest Middle School for next fall, all parents need to indicate how their children will continue with their musical selections in sixth grade. Please go to the Middle School Music Sign-ups and make your selection(s) no later than Friday, April 26, 2019

.


In middle school, each of these musical groups will meet several times during the school week. The band, chorus, and orchestra will perform two concerts just as the elementary groups have done this school year. The middle school musical groups will perform during the holiday season in December and in the last part of the school year in May for their final concert.



Due to the nature of the middle school schedule, students may only sign up for two of the three performing ensembles. Please note that students are making a yearlong commitment by signing up for an ensemble; schedules cannot be changed during the school year.



Please make sure to read the FAQ's for Middle School Music that are included as part of the sign-up process. We hope this will provide answers for some of the questions which may arise.

If you have any further questions after reading the FAQ's, please contact Dr. Pammer at Indian Valley 215-256-8896 or Mrs. McCoy at Indian Crest 215-732-9193.
