2nd Grade Music Notes
Our 2nd Grade Concert is December 10, at 6:00pm
We have been working on songs for our concert! Our concert will be December 10th, at 6:00pm. Performance is one of the Indiana State Music Standards and at Joan Martin each grade level has ONE concert a year. This concert is our "test" for the semester and all students will be receiving a grade for their effort and personal best during the concert. Please let Mrs. Amsler know in advance if you have a conflict in schedules so an alternate assignment can be worked out.
On the evening of the concert, students should meet in their classrooms at 5:45. Please enter through the gym doors (door 11). Dress code for performers is "nice" dress clothes (please no jeans, t-shirts, or athletic gear)- even better if they have Christmas colors!
Grandparents day is at 2pm on the day of our concert
We are also excited to announce that our Grandparent’s/Special Friend’s day will also be on December 10th. Grandparents and special friends are invited to watch our performance at 2:00pm in the Joan Martin Gym.
Please let your grandparent/special friend know to arrive no earlier than 1:45 and enter through the gym doors (door 11). Parking will be available in lots B and C (gym parking lots). Students will not be allowed to leave school early with their grandparent/special friend. Thank you for allowing us to continue our learning day!
