Parents & Students:
Welcome to March!! It's Music In Our Schools Month!
The video at the top of my home page is one example of more videos I have added to my video page. It will now feature contemporary Christian artists/groups.
This year's theme: Music Connects Us! At the end of everyday, I will be playing a song performed by a contemporary Christian artist or group. Some of the most popular artists/groups include: Casting Crowns, David Crowder, Lauren Daigle, Third Day, and Toby Mac. I'll update my videos page to include these artists.
Once again Lip Sync Battles will take place in the gym after morning prayer. At last count, we have around 12 individuals/groups that are participating. The individual/group that wins each battle, continues until they are defeated. The individual/group that becomes this year's champion will receive a $25 iTunes Gift card to purchase...MUSIC!! Or, whatever they choose, but hopefully it's...MUSIC!!
All Junior High students are preparing Music Biography Cubes to be displayed in the common hallways of the school starting on Monday, March 19th. These cubes will have information about contemporary Christian artists/groups and QR Codes that can be scanned to take you to their website and YouTube video of one of their hit songs. If you visit us during morning prayer or the Fish Fry, use the QR Reader app on your phone and check out some of these Christian artists.
We are preparing for Dauphin County Chorus, Comic Book Artist, and the spring concert. County Chorus will be held at the Forum in Harrisburg on Saturday, April 7th at 2:30 p.m. Comic Book Artist will take place from April 20th to 22nd on the school's stage. Our annual spring concert will be held on Monday, May 14th at 6:45 p.m. Please visit the Ensembles page to know the when, where, and what for student expectations and attire.
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.
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: email@example.com. 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.
