We will be beginning recorder in the next week. Students will be borrowing recorders from the school, and each will be assigned an instrument with a number. Students will need to carry these back and forth from school, so cases are recommended. If you would like to purchase one on your own, please let me know as I can purchase them at a discounted price. Students in Grade 4 may also have the opportunity to begin the Alto recorder.
Percussion ensemble will be beginning next week on January 12th. We have two projects that we will be beginning in this new year: preparing for the QUEENS COUNTY MUSIC FESTIVAL as well as preparing a rendition of “O Canada” for a national competition sponsored through Long and McQuade. New members are welcome in the month of January, but membership will be closed after Jan. 31st.
The Grade Fours will be beginning work on their first research project on Alexander Graham Bell. I will be sending home more information later on this week.
Psalm 62 Attached is a copy of the next set of verses we will be learning this month. Each student will have a copy of this at school in their Bible notebooks as well.
Here is our newsletter for the week:
That’s all for now. Have a great week.
