September Music Notes:


  • Please check Power School often. Students are graded on participation and skills. I follow the National and State Music Standards when preparing lessons, and grading students.
  • Elementary Choir will be starting Monday September 11 for children in grades 3-5. We will meet in the music room during lunch recess.
  • Student cantors will lead mass each Tuesday morning. Cantors are chosen from those students who chose choir for their exploratory option.
