MONTHLY THEMES

Want to know what your child is learning in Music Class?

Start by asking them about their monthly theme - This can get a conversation going about the songs and concepts they are studying - and it may even spark a family sing-along!

OCTOBER THEMES ARE:

  • K -Mystery Animals!
  • 1 - Cats, Mice and Spiders
  • 2 - Time for Xylophones and Metallophones
  • 3 - The Melody Mountains
  • 4 - Beginning Recorder and Ukulele
  • 5 - Advanced Recorder and Ukulele

*NEW!*

SOUNDGARDEN

Well, the drumming fundraiser didn't "hit it off" like we'd have liked.

So, instead, we're redirecting our musical energies toward the building of a SOUNDGARDEN on campus. Mrs. Fowler will be working with the PTO and hopefully some other outside funding sources to try and make this happen. Please see your PTO reps or email Mrs. Fowler for more details!

Potential Sources for Funding

$1545 - Crowd Sourced Fundraiser

$2000 - Potential PTO earmark

$900 - Internal Music Account

$1200 - District Funds

$2000 - Potential IDES Facilities earmark

$10,000 - NEA Matching Grant (Fingers Crossed)

Local Businesses? Private Donors? Another Crowd Source?

4th/5th GRADE RECORDERS

4th and 5th graders are playing recorder this year. If students have their own recorders, great!

If they don't have one yet, they are still be available for purchase from Mrs. Fowler for $5.00. Please make checks payable to IDES - MUSIC, or enclose cash in an envelope marked with your child's full name and classroom teacher.

Order any time in the school year!

UKULELE CLUB

Ukulele Club is back ON for the 2019-2020 School Year

If you have ideas for events that might feature a song selection performance by the Club, we'd love to help out!

Email Mrs. Fowler with the event date/time and details.
