Dear Parents and Guardians,
January is going to be a fabulous month in the music room! Students will be working on singing, playing a wide range of instruments, composing, improvising, and performing in a variety of settings. We will be incorporating theater and movement into the curriculum.
We would love to have parents volunteer for our Parent-Teacher Events Committee to help plan and facilitate school wide events. If you are interested in participating, the committee will meet every Tuesday from 2:45-3:15pm in room 137.
I am looking forward to a wonderful month of learning with our students!
