5th Grade PCA Parent/ Guardian,
Your fifth grader will begin to study recorders during their weekly music class, starting January 21st. I have some recorders here available at school for students to play but not enough for every student. So If able, please purchase a recorder for your child. They are available on amazon.com and at the Shelby Music Center. They range from about $3-$15.
All students will need a gallon size ziplock bag to store their recorder in. Donations of gallon baggies are greatly appreciated in the case of a broken/torn bag. Our students health is very important and we want to store the instruments in a sanitary fashion. If a student does not have a zip lock bag or sanitary way to store their instrument, they cannot use a recorder.
Please send in your child's recorder in a gallon bag with their name on it as soon as you can. We will begin playing recorders on January 21st so I will need all recorders in my music room before then.
Ms. Katie Duncan
PCA General Music Teacher
