BYOD in Music Class

March is Music in Our Schools Month, and our theme this year is: Music Inspires! Mrs. Fosnaugh is challenging ALL students to get inspired with Quaver Music. Quaver Music is an interactive music website that allows students to learn more about music through interactive games and also allows students to create their own music. Parents can help their child sign-up for a free account on Quaver Music with a parent email address (www.quavermusic.com). Please check this cool music website out! Quaver Music has also developed their own APP for musical learning and creation. WE WILL USE THIS APP IN MUSIC CLASS IN MARCH! All students (K-5) are encouraged to load the Quaver App called QSTUDENT on their devices and bring their device to music class beginning Tuesday, March 8. Get inspired with QSTUDENT!!

Bring Your Own Device

Students in all grade levels K-5 are now permitted to bring their own device to school with them! For more information about BYOD check out the BYOD Information section on our school website. Contact your child's teacher for more information!
