Welcome back! Check here often for updates about music class, as well as pictures and videos!
As part of our music curriculum, 4th and 5th grade will be learning to play the recorder. 4th Grade students will begin recorder at the second quarter. 5th grade students will begin recorder in September. All students will need two recorders, one recorder at school and one at home for practicing. This way your child will not have to remember to bring the recorder back and forth. Your child is responsible for having their recorder at every music class.
If your child does not already have two recorders, purchasing a recorder is fairly inexpensive. Recorders can be purchased from the school at the price of 2 for $7.00. Books will be provided by the school at NO COST! Students will get to keep their books at the end of the school year and 4th graders will use their recorders again next year in 5th grade.
We have a limited supply of used recorders available for $1.00. (Used recorders have been sanitized and come with a cleaning rod and no case). These will be available first come, first served.
The recorders come in a variety of colors: Red, Green, Blue, and Purple. We will be pre-ordering the recorders to help us speed up the process of supplying recorders to all students. Please return the bottom portion of this paper in an envelope with your child’s name and class written clearly on the front. Orders are due Wednesday, August 30th.
