SUMMER 2020

There is LOT's of INFO below

Dear Parents, Guardians, Students and Families:

In light of all that is going on in the world.. our SUMMER MAILING looks a little different this year... and although what the fall will look like is a little unknown right now... what we do know is that we will be making music some how.. some way...


As a member of the Fenton High School Music Choral Department, your child finally has the opportunity to do what so many successful students have done before them, Be Part of the Music!


We know that for some of you, this will be your first exposure to music education and I wanted to take a brief minute to share some information with you. Below this letter is information regarding our program and the different opportunities it provides for your child.


Music education is more than just singing. It is immersing your child in a culture of successful students and teachers who care about education. It challenges each child to use the creative side of his or her brain while, at the same time, learning a foreign language…MUSIC.


All of the current data clearly states that students involved in music education academically outperform their non-musical counterparts. But, more importantly, studies are showing that music students are less likely to engage in risky behaviors such as drugs and alcohol.


Please keep the calendar of “Important Events” (below) for your reference throughout the year (this is also available in digital format on the webpage as well). As much of these dates could change depending on what the fall looks like we are asking that you mark your calendars, but be as flexible as possible with any necessary changes.


I also encourage you to “get connected” in order to get electronic updates for each class/ensemble. If after reading all of these materials you still have questions, please feel free to contact me at any time using the info listed below.


Every destination starts with a decision to embark on a journey. While I can’t promise that every child will be a musical prodigy, but I can promise they will learn, laugh, and grow along the way.


Sincerely,

Seredy M. Williams

Virtual Classroom

With a remote learning start to the 2020 school year we will once again be using Google Classroom as our avenue to distribute class work and assignments. You will also be able to view and access all that is going on via our virtual classroom (link below).. although it is currently under construction this summer it will be a fantastic resource for all as we navigate the school year.
