Busy Times!!!

I apologize for the slight pause in my posts, but a lot has been happening lately and I have fallen slightly behind.

Coming up soon:  5th Grade ensemble began just two weeks ago, however on Tuesday night we will be singing the National Anthem at the Varsity volleyball game at the High School.  Students should please report at 6:30 in the High School Gym.  Approximately 6:45 we will be moving to the hallway so that we can practice a couple times, and approximately 7:00 we should be performing the anthem.  Although we have only had 2 weeks of prep time, I am excited about how well they are following my direction and the sound they are putting together.

Next month, both Libertyville and Washington Elementaries will be putting on a Veteran's Program.  Students are working hard in music to learn songs to perform at the programs that will help us remember our Veterans and all they have given to keep our Freedoms that we all enjoy.

This last week has also brought our Winter program to my mailbox.  We will be performing in December at the Sondheim Center and we need to begin those preparations shortly to be ready in time.  Besides concert preparations we will still be concentrating on our regular classroom objectives such as steady beat, counting rhythms and enjoying new songs.  Fourth Grade Ensemble will also be starting this week, so please watch for permission slips to be coming home with your students.

Lastly for this week, I do believe the date has been set for the Middle School Vocal Music Program.  the program will include the 7th and 8th Grade choir and the MS Ensemble.  The concert will be at the Middle School on Monday October 24th at 6:30 PM.  We do recognize that there is also HS Volleyball Regionals that night, but it our intention to be done by 7:00 which should allow people the ability to attend both events.  Watch for more information to follow soon.

Thank you for your students and your support,
~Mr. G
