3RD and 4TH GRADE MUSIC NOTES
The third and fourth grade students will be playing the recorder in music class this year. The recorder is a woodwind instrument. Each child will need their own recorder. These may be purchased in the music room. Recorders will cost $3.00. Checks should be written to Fall Creek Elementary. Please place the money in an envelope marked with your child’s first and last name and homeroom teacher. If you need assistance to cover the cost of the recorder, please send in a note. All requests will be kept confidential.
Recorder instruction will begin the second nine weeks. All students need a recorder by October 10th.
Recorders will be kept at school so that the students have them each time for music. They will be sent home at the end of the year and occasionally with 4th graders for practice. If your student would like one for home, please feel free to purchase an additional recorder. If you are purchasing more than one recorder, please indicate that on the outside of the envelope. I do not always open the envelope right away when it is handed to me. If your child purchased a recorder last year, they do not need to purchase a new one. You may also purchase a recorder elsewhere or bring one that another child has used. I encourage you to not purchase a recorder from the “dollar store”. These are often of poor construction and the students become frustrated when they cannot produce a good tone.
The students in third and fourth grade do not present a grade level music program but will still have the opportunity to perform a music program by participating in choir. All third and fourth grade students are invited to be a part of the choir. 3rd and 4th grade choir will be starting on October 4th. The choir will be meeting on Tuesday and Friday mornings at 8:00 a.m. A calendar of dates and program information will be sent home at the first rehearsal. No registration is necessary, they just need to attend the rehearsal. I know that other groups are meeting on Tuesdays and I try to be very flexible so that students can participate in more than one activity. I would ask that they attend as many rehearsals as possible. For the safety of students, please do not drop off earlier than 7:50 a.m. Prior to 7:50 a.m. adult supervision will not be available. During the first semester we will be preparing for the Veteran’s Day Program, Holiday Program, and Carols and Caring at a local retirement center.
