All Classes
I will be working this week on updating all grades! I will also be catching up on emails to parents/guardians. Thank you for being patient as I return your email.

Have a wonderful and restful holiday.

Please stay safe.
Wind Ensemble: 
Wind Ensemble is busy getting ready for the Winter Concert in December. Information regarding this concert will be sent home after the Thanksgiving break. Please keep encouraging your child to practice! The students are learning new scales and new music so home practice is critical to maintaining the new concepts from class to class. Thank you for your help parents. :)
Parents of LaunchEd students: I need your help with having your child turning on their camera during band. Band is a class that I need to visually watch how students are playing their instruments. It is difficult to see if they don't turn the cameras on or the camera is faced toward ceiling. I have set up my room so the only person who sees the LaunchEd students is ME! Also I have done some extensive research to find the best microphone that cancels out background noise so the students can clearly hear me.
Jazz Band: 
The Jazz Band is also getting ready for the Winter Concert in December. Things are still up in the air for elementary recruiting. Once things become more finalized the students will be get the information

Any questions please feel free to contact Mrs. Westerman:
