Recorder reminder for Intermediate Students

Students that are in a classroom that is comprised of a straight grade three class configuration or higher, need to have a recorder at school throughout the next two terms. Your child has been aware, since the beginning of term one, that they have needed to purchase one. If your child is new to the school this year, or you have not yet purchased a recorder for your child -or your child has broken their recorder due to improper care, please purchase one for them -or have them personally purchase another one. Recorders are for sale in the Music Room during break times and are $7.00. We encourage you to please consider purchasing a better sounding recorder from the school rather than purchasing one from elsewhere where the tone will not match the instruments we sell at the school. Please ask your child if they need a recorder and have your child come and see Mr. McKeen if they need to purchase one.

Thelast Munch A Lunch will be provided Tuesday June 4th!

REMINDERS

Drop Off

Teachers will be on supervision starting at 8:30 every morning. Please do not drop your child off before 8:30. This is for safety reasons as there will be no one outside monitoring our playground and field areas.

After school supervision ends at 2:55pm. Please ensure you let the office know if you are picking up students late and also remind students to enter the building and let the office know if their pick-up person has not arrived.

Parking

A reminder that the drop-off area is not to be used for parking; traffic is meant to flow through this area. Please be courteous to other drivers and do not park in this area.

Please do not park in the bus stop area on the east side of the building.

Arriving Late

Please say “Hi!” to Mrs. Anderson in the office before heading to class. This ensures we know you will be spending the day with us!

Beginner Ukulele for Students

Did you know that individuals that play an instrument score close to 50 percent higher in spatial intelligence than those that do not play an instrument? Such skills help students with higher abstract reasoning which benefits them in math and sciences. So, here’s your chance to help make more connections in your child’s brain by connecting more dendrites while at the same time having fun!

Two higher level ukulele groups (the ukulele “A” group and the ukulele “B” group) are already established, now the opportunity is here for other students to catch the ukulele wave.

Sessions take place every Tuesday, from 4:15-5:30pm.

This beginner uke class is the feeder group for the ukulele “A” and “B” group and is open to any student in grade three or higher. Over time, students in this group will have the opportunity to become members of the ukulele A and B groups as they improve upon their skill.

Sign up soon as the first session begins on Tuesday, September 26.

Pop in to see Mr. McKeen at the school or call him at 250-782-8311 to sign up and he’ll give you all of the information you need to be a part of this exciting, new group.

Ukulele for Parents

This one is for you, parents! Catch the ukulele train and learn how to play this wonderful instrument. Don’t be shy, as a new adult group will start up and you’ll join other adult beginners as you learn this fun instrument. No musical background is necessary.

You’ll learn from a certified, James Hill Ukulele Initiative instructor (me!) and be amazed at how quickly you can develop strong music literacy skills through this fun, inexpensive, and portable instrument.

Classes take place twice a month in the Music Room on Tuesday nights from 7:30-9:00pm

Pop in to see Mr. McKeen at the school or call him at 250-782-8311 to sign up and he’ll give you all of the information you need to be a part of this exciting, new group.
