Mrs. Dale - Music/Band/Library

Notes from the Music Room:

March is Music In Our School Month. This is a great time to express your thanks to the Principal, Superintendent, and School Board for including music education as part of a holistic education. As a celebration for Music In Our Schools Month, the 6th Grade Beginning Band will be travelling to Rich Hill on March 22nd. They will be part of a large band made up of first year players from Rich HIll, Archie, Drexel, Butler, Adrian, and Hume. They will rehearse as a group, give a short concert, and receive a free tshirt!
Students in Band are otherwise hard at work preparing for the GVVC Conference Band event in April at Cottey College. As well as preparing for May's Fort Scott Contest.
Elementary Music is having a great time as well. K/1 are playing lots of fun music games working on keeping a steady beat and identifying high and low pitch. 2nd/3rd Grade have become very proficient at playing different parts on xylophones as part of a group. And of course 4th//5th grades are making huge strides on recorder! They are the fastest-moving recorder ensemble I have ever worked with.
