Congratulations to Our 5th Grade Graduates-

Wow!

Thank you to Paula Duncan, artist extraordinaire, the Campus Beautification Team, and our parent volunteers who helped with the installation of the beautiful new sign on our gym.  It is absolutely amazing.

Author Spotlight

First grader, Lucas, wrote an opinion piece stating that Sonoma Taco Shop is the best restaurant in the world.  He shared his writing with the owner and it will soon be framed in the restaurant for all to see.  Check it out next time you visit.  Well done, Lucas!

NEXT YEAR'S 4TH GRADE MUSIC

As you may know, your students will be participating in the district music program next year as 4th graders, and they were asked to share their preferences for orchestra or band, and what instrument they are interested in playing (violin, viola, clarinet, or trumpet). 

Last Friday, June 3rd, notifications were sent informing students which group and what instrument they will be playing next year.  

Students were asked to provide their own instruments, music book, and necessary supplies if possible. There is specific information for band and for orchestra, so please look for the information that matches the group and instrument that was selected specifically for them.

 

NEXT YEAR'S 5TH GRADE MUSIC

As you may already know, your students will be participating in the district music program next year as 5th graders, and were asked to share their preferences for orchestra, band, or choir, and what instruments they may be interested in playing.  Last Friday, June 3rd, notifications were sent informing students which group and what instrument they will be playing next year. 

If students are in Band or Orchestra next year, they were asked to provide their own instruments, music book, and necessary supplies if possible. Please note:  there is specific information for band and for orchestra ONLY (Choir students do not need to provide anything to participate), so please look for the information that matches the group and instrument that was selected specifically for them.

 

Many thanks to our 3-5 musical instructional team! We are grateful for you and we are going to miss Steve, Band Leader, 2nd from right, and Mr. Reider, 1st from right.
