Key Notes


"Music can change the world because it can change people."        - Bono
Welcome back to school ! In addition to having some cool music experiences in their home classrooms, Grades K-5 will spend 1/2 hour per week exploring and making music with Ms. Jenkins. Music classes with Ms. Jenkins will usually meet in Rm. 22 .

Here are some ways you can enrich our TCPS community with music. Can you think of some more?

*Bring in a song , dance , instrument or music-related item , or an interesting fact to share or teach in class !
*Prepare and perform some music for your classmates !
*Prepare a musical performance for the Spring Show !  

See you soon for some music-making :-)
