We are off to great start in music class, and looking forward to a great year!  We are learning the elements of music through singing, playing instruments, and movement!  We have several performances planned throughout the year!  Check the performance dates below, and mark them on your calendar.

*Based on current aerosol studies, all students will be 3 ft. apart and will wear a mask when singing in music class.
