November Update

Whew!  November is moving right along!  What a short, yet completely jam-packed, month November is in the music department!  With Halloween behind us, the music department now (unfortunately) does what all the retail stores do:  skip November and focus full-time on the Holidays!  The band and chorus have actually been in "holiday mode" since September, but we are shifting into full-time holiday mode now that the Kindergarteners, 1st graders, 2nd graders, and 3rd graders have begun work on our K-3 Holiday musical:  a musical by Teresa Jennings called "This Old Gingerbread House."  It's a pretty "sweet" play, ha!  The kids are off to a good start with it.

Blizzard bags went home at the beginning of this month, and the students have been briefed during class on what to do if the blizzard bag day falls on a day that they normally have musical activities:  music class, band, lessons, or chorus.  For your convenience, there is a link to my blizzard bag page above.

Chorus students:  the Chorus Practice Guide page has finally been fully-updated and is officially up and running with this year's holiday music!  Enjoy the chance to practice your chorus music at home!

As the days grow short and we all start to feel the hustle and bustle of the holiday season increasing the swiftness of our steps, I sure hope that everyone is still able to take some time to slow down, breathe, and bask in the glow of what really matters in life.  Happy Veteran's Day and a special thank you to all of those who have served and/or continue to serve our great country.  Happy Thanksgiving to all!
