Your child will be learning songs in Music class and in Spanish class to share with you. If your child is interested in taking part in the performance, please click the link below and fill out the survey. All rehearsals take place during Music and Spanish class, so your child won’t have any after school or morning rehearsals. Simply sign up, and show up to perform on March 5th!

Class Notes

  • On 2/14 students may bring in Valentine Cards to exchange. We have 18 students, participation is not mandatory but I ask that if you do participate you have a card for every student. Your student can fill out the from section, but I ask that they not write “to” specific students as this makes it harder for students to deliver their own cards.
