Due to some changes on the district's network, I had to create a new YouTube account and channel to use in the classroom and for student use! If you have visited my channel before to help practice for upcoming performances or to see the videos we have watched in class, please visit my new YouTube channel and subscribe to it so you can continue to view all the great things we learn! Here it is: Thank you and let's keep making music!!

This website’s purpose is to keep the students and parents of Simmons Elementary updated on all the great happenings of the Music Program. It will include information on what is going on in the classroom itself, what performances are coming up and other music activities your kids could be involved in! If your student has a performance coming up, visit the performances page at the top to find links to my YouTube Playlists so they can practice at home! There will be announcements of performances days and times as they get closer.

Simmons Elementary is excited to honor all military veterans and those currently serving our country at a special Veterans Day assembly on

Monday, November 12, 2018 at 8:00 am.

During the assembly students will learn the importance of Veterans Day, recognize each branch of the military, and show appreciation to those who have served or are currently serving our country through presentations and songs.

If able, we would love to have any special veteran or member of the military in your life join us! We will have a special reception in the library for the veterans at the conclusion of the assembly. Please RSVP if a veteran will be joining your student during the assembly.

We would also like to honor our veterans by wearing the colors of our flag! Students may wear the color shirt their grade level is assigned below. Plain, non-uniform shirts are okay for this day. Please wear uniform bottoms.

Kindergarten and 1st Grade: BLUE

4th and 2nd Grade (and Ms. Arnold): WHITE

We would love to display a photograph (in uniform if possible) of your veteran on our honor wall. Please send in a photograph (they will be copied and returned) or email a photograph to along with the following information: veteran's name, branch served, years served, student(s), relationship to student(s) and whether or not he/she will be attending the assembly and reception.

Below are the 3 songs we are learning! Kindergarten and First Grade will be singing "Land of the Free, Thanks to the Brave." Second and Third Grades will be singing "On Vet'rans Day." And Fourth and Fifth Grades will be singing "The Brave." Fall Break is a great time to start memorizing the words!
