Happy Valentines Day to all!  This year is flying by so fast!  Can you believe that we only have 3 months left of school!  

4th and 5th grade parents:  We are currently working on recorders in class.  If your child has a recorder at home, please have them bring them to school so we can use them in class.  Each homeroom has a basket that they can store their instrument in when it is not in use.  I encourage students to take them home and practice them.  But don't forget to bring them back!

Here is a useful website for recorder practicing:
Students may also access this link in our music google classroom

If your child does not have a recorder and you would prefer that they have their own, recorders can be purchased through me for $6.  Recorders may also be purchased inexpensively at any local music store.  

Congratulations to this year's OCES Honor's Chorus!  The following students will be attending a special clinic led by Mrs. Carol Reeves of the Georgia Children's Choir on Saturday, March 19th.  They are currently working on challenging choral music after school on Tuesdays.  Thank you to the 70+ students who auditioned.  The competition was fierce this year and I am proud of every student who auditioned!

Its hard to believe summer is already here.  It has been a fantastic year!  Congratulations to our 5th graders.  They will be missed as they move on to the middle school, but I can't wait to hear about all the wonderful things they will be doing there.  To my rising 6th graders, feel free to post your awesome accomplishments here as you are working toward being "Hall of Famers."

I hope everyone has a wonderful summer.  Stay tuned for upcoming news in the OCES music world and in the community.

See you in the fall!
