A Note from the Music Teacher

Happy Holidays Parents and Guardians!

When we return from the break, we will be learning the recorder in 3rd - 5th grade, and soprano ukulele in 6th grade. We will be taking orders for recorders starting the week we return, and orders will be due the 13th of January.

Recorders are required for all students in 3rd -5th grade, they will be $6.00. If you would like to get a jump start on the new year, recorders make great stocking stuffers. The recorders we will be ordering in January are the Yamaha YRS-24B Soprano Recorders. You can purchase one online or at a music store.

Soprano ukuleles are not a requirement for students to have. I do have 24 instruments that the district purchased for student use, however because of the class size some of the students must share instruments. If your 6th grader is interested in having their own soprano ukulele, you can find them for a reasonable price on Amazon or at any music store.

Merry Christmas!

Career Day Participants Wanted

Hopeful Participant,

Nola K Wilson Elementary will host a Career Day on Thursday, February 3, 2021. The purpose of Career Day is to expose students to a variety of careers in order to motivate them to start thinking about their future goals. By preparing early, students become more inspired to be college and career ready after high school graduation. All students in our school will participate and are always excited about this event. However, we cannot do it without you!

Our Career Day activities will run from 1:00 to 3:00. We need volunteers to give 7-12 minute presentations during this time. Presenters may bring engaging props or visuals or technology needed to help facilitate the presentation. And be prepared to answer questions from our overly excited, inquisitive students!

If you are interested in volunteering, please click on the link and complete the form. We will contact you with more information at a later date. We certainly look forward to hearing from you.

Identification Cards

Please note district policy (Student Handbook p. 87) which states:

  • Identification cards must be visibly worn around the neck at all times while on school property. All students must wear identification cards to ride buses. The district may charge a $5 fee for replacement or damaged badges.
  • The embedded code ID badges that we received at the beginning of the school year from the Transportation Department, are the only official student ID badge for our district.
  • Please make sure each of your students is wearing their official badge daily. If they do not have one, please notify parents that $5.00 is needed and send them to the front office for a new one. Students not wearing an official ID badge are considered out of dress code per policy.
  • Additional, at the end of each day, please ensure the bus riders have their badges around their neck as they exit the classroom and when they line up in their bus line. Campus staff should make sure the student’s badge is visible and accessible as they board the bus to expedite efficient loading and decrease wait time in the bus loop.
