Our 2nd Grade Concert is December 12, at 6:00pm
We have been working on songs for our concert! Our concert will be December 12th, 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.
PLEASE NOTE- this date may have been incorrectly marked as Dec. 14 in previous communications. December 12 is the correct and updated date for our concert. We will still take a field trip on December 14 to see the ballet.
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 12th. Grandparents and special friends are invited to watch our performance at 2:00pm in the Joan Martin Gym.
