A little bit about the music classroom:

In music class students will sing, move, listen, imitate, explore, experience, analyze, classify, create, share, perform, notate, read, improvise, cooperate, and most importantly HAVE FUN!!!! We strive to create innovative, engaging lesson plans which include singing, playing instruments, and moving in each of our lessons. Music is important here at Dolvin Elementary. Studies show that students who receive music perform better on tests involving reading, math, problem solving, and logical thinking.

Chorus starts TOMORROW! :)

Hello everyone!

I wanted to send a few quick reminders.  First, I am returning from maternity leave this Monday and will hold our first after school chorus rehearsal.  Pick up is promptly at 3:30 on the Jones Bridge Road entrance.

Also, since we are getting a bit of a late start on rehearsals due to my leave, we have a lot of work to do.  I ask that all chorus members join our Edmodo group.  I have posted lyrics, MP3s, and videos to aid in learning and memorizing the music.  It would be helpful if students come to rehearsal Monday prepared.  Please go to www.edmodo.com to sign-up or join our group.  Please e-mail me for the group code.

We have an exciting event coming up in December, the Sing for Santa event at the Gladiator Game.  This is not a required event; however, it is a great opportunity to sing with other chorus students and spend time with friends and family outside of Dolvin.  Each child will need a parent or chaperon attending in order to participate.  We will meet at the arena.  Meeting times and locations as well as specifics will be coming home soon.  Please RSVP here to ensure we have ample seating for our chorus group.  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dEU1RnAxOTBxRDZXaTZPLXFWQkpKR2c6MA#gid=0 This will be needed by next Wednesday.  Last year we didn't have enough seating due to an inaccurate headcount.  The event will be held on December 15th.  Please see attached flyer for more information.  All students attending will be responsible for memorizing the selected holiday tunes distributed by the Gladiator Coordinator.  Click here to view the flyer.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I will strive to answer them all as quickly as possible.

I look forward to singing with your children this Monday!
