    Welcome back everyone!

    Thank you for all your support with the holiday Program. It went really well, and the kids seemed to love it! Our  superintendent attended one of the performances and also mentioned how great they were.

    Now that school is back, we are beginning some new things. Home depot has selflessly donated some new empty five gallon buckets. I am working on creating sticks and readying the buckets. Our 4th and 5th graders are going to be beginning a brand new unit in bucket drumming. It will be structured similiar to a drumline and I think it's going to go well!

    Third grade is diving into the study of 16th notes and more complicated rounds and onstinatos. 

    Second grade and first grade are going to be continuing our work on the xylophones. 

    Kindergarten will finally begin with some instruments. They have been looking forward to this all year, and I'm so excited to make it happen!

    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email or call me. 

    Thanks!

    Halloween games were fun and everything but now starts the real game. Today marks the first rehearsal of music for our Holiday program later in December. The performances will be on December 19th. There will be three concerts, each lasting around 30 minutes. K-1, 2-3, and 4-5 are each performing their own little show for you all.

    Feel free to come by, concerts start at 12:30pm and will take place in the Lowell gym. 

    Wish us luck as we embark on some fun tunes!
