We are two weeks away from our annual Christmas concert. Please mark your school, kitchen, and mobile calendars with the dates for the Christmas and spring concerts. Our Christmas concert will be held on Monday, December 15, 2014 and the spring concert will be held on Monday, May 11, 2015. Both concerts will start at 6:45 p.m. and will be held in the sanctuary. Please visit the Ensembles tab and choose your child's current choir or special music group to learn the requirements for their concert attire.
I am still in need of all parents/students to sign up for the Remind app. I will be using the Remind app to post assignments, due dates, notices to study for upcoming tests, and pictures to keep all parents and students aware of everything happening in music and Spanish classes. If you have already signed up, thank you for doing so. If you have not, please download the free app from either the App Store or Google Play Store. Once you are ready to add your student to a class, please use the following class codes for music/Spanish:
4th Grade: @aee93
5th Grade: @d70d (that is a zero; not the letter O)
6th Grade: @9a18b4
7th Grade: @736677
8th Grade: @b36c8b
Please be sure to check out the Music Classes and Spanish Classes tabs to find out what's happening in class. Thanks for checking in each month. I will try harder to stay up to date. Have a Merry Christmas and safe New Year!
