Welcome to an exciting year of music at Oberon Middle School! I am so very lucky to be a teacher here at this school and am thrilled to have the honor to work with these students. Most definitely, I have the best job in the world.

Solo and Ensemble Times are posted

posted Apr 7, 2014, 6:17 AM by Kelly Watts

Please go to the forms section and open up the Solo and Ensemble schedule for 2014 to find your time. 

Solo and Ensemble is this Saturday, April 12. It is at O’Connell Middle School. Above is your scheduled time. Please make sure that you are at the school at least half an hour before your time. There will be some warm-up rooms but they will be very limited and could have more than just you in them. String players, I suggest tuning your instruments before you arrive, and then just doing a check when you get there. I will be there checking in to see if you need anything, but don’t count on me being there to help you tune or help you warm-up.

REMEMBER: you need an original copy of your music for the judge. They will not let you play if you give them a copy. You and your accompanist may play from a copy.

If you have any other questions please email me.

Thanks, good luck, and Have fun!!!

Ms Watts

A MIP info sheet went out at the end of last week. I need it back by MARCH 17. This way I can get to you your final payment amount. If I do not received it by then, I assume you are not attending. If you need a new sheet it can be found in the forms section.

Below is a copy of the email that went home to students registered for Solo and Ensemble. 

You are receiving this email because your son or daughter has expressed interest in participating in Jefferson County's Solo and Ensemble day.  This is a chance for students to get together with their friends and play together in groups that they might not normal get to. It is also a chance for them to shine by sharing a solo. 

This is a student led program. I can help them pick music, and at times that I can, I can help them prepare it. But for the most part this is something that they have to do by themselves. Because of my schedule back in forth between all my schools, I am not readily available to help after school.

Solo and Ensemble is on April 12, that is a Sat. It is at O'Connell Middle school. Times are assigned to the students, however if there is a conflict there MAY be an opportunity to make some special requests. Solo and Ensemble does cost money to participate. However, I have some money in my budget set aside this year to help cover the cost. Your student has already been registered, but I have not yet paid for them. I am just double checking that this is something that your son or daughter, is seriously interested in. 

Please let me know by WEDNESDAY the 5th, if your student is going to be participating in this event.

If you have any questions please email me.

posted Dec 5, 2013, 6:11 AM by Kelly Watts

Next week is our yearly recruitment night. It is a chance for the 6th graders to come and see what middle school, especially Oberon, is all about.

There has been some confusion about exact times, and the date on the blue sheet that went home, is wrong. I apologize for any confusion, and if this has created any problems please let me know ASAP and we can take care of it.

Students need to be at the school by 6 PM. This has changed from the information that went out last night. Again, I apologize and if this is a problem let me know.

Students will come to Oberon and warm-up. We will then put on a short concert of two songs for the elementary students and parents. Afterwards, you may leave. We should be done by 7 pm.

DINNER WILL NOT BE PROVIDED FOR YOUR STUDENT. The pizza is only for the 6th graders.

*Students need to be in concert dress, ALL BLACK. Please remember that school dress code still applies. *

The correct dates are as follows:

BAND- December 9th

ORCHESTRA- December 10th


If you have any questions or other concerns please email me.
