Recorder forms will be sent home soon. Please read them and send in the money to your child's classroom teacher. Recorders are $5 if purchased from the school. Contact me (Mrs.Franklin) if you have any questions or concerns about recorders. The last day for collection of the funds is October 7, 2011.
Music Dress Up Day! During the week of Fri. Oct 21st until Thurs. Oct.27th your child will be able to dress up as their favorite singer, instrumentalist, or composer. "Halloween" costumes are not allowed. However, if your child dresses up as a character that sings and they happen to also be a figure that has an official costume that will be ok. Please do not have your children wear something that completely covers their face. For security measures we NEED TO KNOW WHO THEY ARE. Looking forward to seeing 100% participation.
