3rd and 4th grade Information

Welcome to third and fourth grade. The main content in these grades will be that of piano and recorders. We start the recorder Karate in full swing now as we try and get all students towards the Black Belt in the fourth grade. Please keep in mind we see the black belt as the expectation and belts beyond that are exceeding expectation. If you notice your child is not making fast gains towards the black belt talk with them and to me so we can find a way to work with your child to reach the grade level expectations. Mr. Hooper will test one belt before or after school by appointments made in advance. We will be selling the recorder karate books this year that contain all the songs they will need. These books will be available for purchase for 4 dollars each.

4th grade musical This year 4th grade will be performing River Child. This is a great little musical that tells the story about the rivers of the world and the cultures that live along the rivers. We will hold auditions during music classes this year. We will have a cast in place by September 25th. We will begin working on the musical in class.
