Music Every Thursday
Welcome back to the new school year! Music will begin the week of Monday, August 26th. Fourth grade students selected their music class at the end of last year, so they should divide between strings, band, and choir on the first music day. The following is some general information to pass along to the students:
Strings: Students in strings will receive information about obtaining an instrument on the first day of class. It is not required for strings students to have an instrument for the first class, however, any students that have an instrument can bring them to school.
Band: Students in band are expected to have their instrument, book, and pencil on the first day of music. Band students chose their instrument during the try-outs in third grade. If they can’t remember their choice, please email Mr. Nail.
Choir: Students in choir are expected to have a folder and a pencil. They do not need to have these items on the first day. Please tell them to have it by the second week.
New to the District: The 4th grade music classes are beginning level, so students that are new to the district can join any of the music classes. New students should observe the class that most interests them on the first day, and the music teacher will provide them with the information they need to get started.
