End of the Year

Hello My Friends!

What a great year of learning we have had! Next week is our final rehearsal for Madrigal Choir and drumming!

We have 5th grade promotion and 5th grade showcase coming up. All 5th graders playing a special part can come to the music room before or after school to practice their parts.

Thank you for a great year of music!

Hello My Friends,

Summer is just around the corner, BUT we still have things that we should be working on:

  • Be Leaders and always show kindness.
  • 4th Grade may test for recorders until the end of this week!
