Busy Music Room

My New Year’s Resolution was to keep you better updated on what’s going on in the music room.  Although that is my resolution every year, I’m really going to give it my best try!

The 4th and 5th graders did a FABULOUS job singing two songs from Hamilton at the PTO meeting.  Thanks to all who came out!  Especially after bringing them to the winter concert the day before.  These kids and their families are rock stars!

Here are some pictures of the third graders hard at work learning the recorder.  I love the way they help and teacher each other!  Special shout out to our first black belt, Claire!  1517072333798

Our fourth graders are planning away and eager to start using instruments for their first projects!  I’m so excited to hear how their recordings come out!


I thought I had some, but I will have to snap a few photos of the first graders performing my very favorite dance for Chinese New Year!  If you’d like to see what a specific grade is up to please leave a comment and I will show you what we are up to!

Aladdin Jr Cast and Crew!

Please review the list carefully as you may have more than one part.  For example, you may be a townsperson and also in the chorus- they sing two different songs.  The Harem Girls and the Princes are also townspeople, but with a specific role/costume or small group part in a song.  If anything is confusing to you please ask Mrs. Lefkus your questions when you pick up your script.

Please pick up your script in the music room- 6th graders can pick them up in the morning before announcements, anyone can pick them up at dismissal.

We had to cut a significant number of crew members, but we thank everyone for your interest!  There were simply too many students interested and not enough jobs.

If you feel you have been felt off the list in error please see Mrs. Lefkus or Mrs. Oliver.  If you still need to sign up for the after-school program please see Mrs. Trent ASAP!
