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.

We are pleased to announce that we will be attending a field trip to the Fulton County Music in Our Schools Month Concert at the Cobb Energy Center. A hard copy of the permission slip went home with students this afternoon. I am attaching a separate copy here for anyone who missed chorus and needs an additional copy. These forms are due tomorrow. The field trip will be free for students and chaperones. If you wish to chaperone this trip, please let me know today or tomorrow. We will need at least 10 volunteers. Volunteers will need to have completed the online volunteer process as well as having your driver's licenses scanned. If you have not completed this process it will take 48 hours and will need to be completed as soon as possible. Contact me for more details and I will direct you to the appropriate sources.
In addition, we distributed choral clinic forms. The choral clinic will be Saturday, March 14th, from 8:30 am - 2:30 pm at Mimosa Elementary School. These are due tomorrow. We apologize for the quick turn around. Here is a copy of this form. This is not a required event. The cost is $25 per child to pay for the cost of the workshop, printed music, snacks, a souvenir bag, water bottle, and t-shirt. This will be a wonderful day of learning followed by a performance for the parents.
Please e-mail me if you have any additional questions or need more information.
