Parents & Students:
Welcome to February!!
I apologize for this late website update. I hoped to have started preparing all students for the spring concert by the end of January, but the music had not arrived. However, last week, all of the music has arrived, so practices will start this week.
Students will NOW be told to prepare for Music in Our Schools Month (March) for our Lip Sync Battles. Students are allowed to compete for the Grand Prize of a $25 iTunes gift card as soloists or in a group. Every morning after morning prayer there will be a Lip Sync Battle. The teachers will vote on each act and the act that receives the most votes moves on to the next round. All acts need to have the title, artist, and lyrics submitted to Mr. Koch by Monday, February 26th. All acts should have a minimum of 3 songs prepared. Good luck to all participants!
Students will also need to start thinking about participating in our annual Talent Show. Again, it can be a solo or group act. Auditions will be held in April. The tentative date for the Talent Show in Wednesday, May 23rd. Registration forms will be sent home a week before auditions.
Dauphin County Chorus auditions have produced the following representative numbers from our school: 3 Middle School and 8 Elementary School students will be participating in this year's festival. If your calendar allows it, please show your support on Saturday, April 7th, 2018 at 2:30 p.m. at the Forum in Harrisburg.
This website and the Remind app will be my primary sources of communication to all students and parents. Please download the Remind app on your mobile devices, parents and students, and join using the codes at the bottom of this page.
You can also send me emails with any questions or concerns to: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm going to try to incorporate new apps, websites, and technology to present information or lessons in class. I also want students to use more technology in my music & Spanish classes.
